    I think he's got the skills to hang with the top guys at bantamweight. I think before he got the golden ticket fight with Faber he was way down the list but I didn't realize he was ranked around 4-5.

    Dodson's a tough out for him
    Everyone else not named TJ, Dom or Assuncao I think he is either 50/50 or favored.

    i think he has the potential to make it very far. Great wrestling, but i could see someone with great tdd and good striking giving him major problems, but i think hes underrated.

    I think he's up there esoecially after the Faber win. I think Assuncao would be a weird match for him but i think he's correctly ranked atm and on par with the guys ranked around him.

    At Bantamweight I think it's Cruz and TJ then everyone else. Those 2's striking and defensive grappling plus the fact their offensive wrestling is pretty good too just put them pretty close to head and shoulder s above everyone else. Either of em can get caught but that's the only way I see either of them losing because skill for skill I don't think anyone else is close.
