    I thought “I bet this guy goes 3-5-2 in his first 10 fights”.

    It was pretty easy to call if you have an eye for these things.

    Knowing how good Ferguson is, I thought Lando was going to be a contender.
    Before seeing this topic, I had forgotten all about him. Is he still in the roster? I'm getting old.

    Seemed pretty good in his first 2 fights tbh. First fight he gave Tony a tough fight and then he wheel kicked Makdessi.

    I don't know if I actually expected him to be an elite fighter but I damn sure was hoping he would be

    That Makdessi fight was particulary impressive because Mak is technical as fuck

    Exciting. Just Bleed Fighter... The type of guy Dana will keep around no matter his record because he doesn't try and lay and pray for 15 minutes.

    Like any decent Sherdogger I look for important signs about them to decide how I think their career will pan out.

    Lando's hairline did not check out.

    It was an incredible debut obviously. It's actually bizarre that he never improved.
