    I mean he tends to give that vibe off. He has been compared to Melvin Manhoef and described as one of the best strikers of all time. Especially now that he is no longer cutting 40 pounds in black bags in saunas, although 20 pounds is not out of the question. Is he an apocalyptic fighter in the mold perhaps of Overeem when he was in DREAM or PRIDE Cro Cop?

    Would he do well at HW?

    If he got hold of dream Overeem supplements, he would look a lot like dream Overeem.

    He is something else for sure

    People should appreciate the quick&brutal KOs while they can, Because in 3-4 years he will be probably be gone and the LHW fights will turn into gay porn simulation again

    He already fought at HW and was dominating

    What exactly is that feeling based on?

    I honestly think he could compete for the title at HW.

    On a serious note: Does anyone know what he walks around at nowadays? He was 230 against Arlovski but looked bigger than he did against Gus and Bader. 225 would be a good guess but he looks a lot bigger than 225 for a 6,2 guy. Chuck Liddell was 225 and Rumble is quite a bit bigger clearly.

    Teodoras Aukstuolis is actually the most apocalyptic fighter since he walks out to Apocalyptica

    What the fuck is an "Apocolyptic Fighter"? Sounds cool as fuck but unless we're living in Mad Max's world I'm not sure if it's an actual thing.

    Well for sure he isn't an apologetic fighter.

    He needs a hockey mask and a deep, gravely voice. "Just walk away, and your life will be spared. Just walk away."
