    I read somewhere that he cuts from 217 lbs to make WW, which is insane. He has decent wrestling from what I've seen, and has beaten another highly touted bjj black belt in Yan Cabral already. I'm a big fan of Gunnar's but I fear the size difference might too much for him to handle, considering Cummings could have more than 20 lbs on him come fight night.

    Zak is ending the hype. He's underrated around here.

    No. Gunnar is better everywhere. Unlike Yan Cabral, Gunnar is competent on his feet and won't be screwed if he can't get the takedown (which he will be able too).

    No, Gunnar is in a different galaxy when it comes to the ground game. And can hold his own in the standup department...
