    I remember people regarding him as one when he first came to the UFC. Has he developed his style into a grappler or do you still think he uses his stand up as his base?

    Judging by how he usually stands I'd say he prefers to strike. Of course contrary to the fact that he's been wrestling guys in his UFC tenure.

    I think his base is mean mugging and technical grunting whilst in the corner.

    I believe Carmont's base these days is scary grunting.

    CB is gonna turn this guy into a wrestler once he hits him.

    I mean, that's what he does but still, he's gonna be rushing for this takedowns once CB lands a punch. This is the first time I'll be rooting for CB Dollaway lol

    I can't remember him ever showcasing his kickboxing skills. I had no idea he was billed as a kickboxer.

    I remember hearing the same thing. He certainly seems to kick very, but man is he boring to watch.

    Just because he's boring doesn't mean he should be cut.

    That depends: is he good for the UFC as a brand or a product? Does he improve viewership or would he turn casuals off?

    Winning/losing and being exciting/dull are both important to the equation.
