    Only 21 years old;

    - He's already one of the most technical strikers in the FW division
    - He's outstruck Poirier, Garcia and Lawrence
    - His chin has been tested by Lawrence and Garcia and its clearly solid
    - Dropping Garcia and putting guys away and he will most likely develop more KO power with time

    As long as he develops good TDD and ability to get back to his feet, this guy is a future contender

    He may have gassed tonight, but he also took the fight on 10 days notice!!!

    Future top 10 for sure. Hope he keeps rounding out his game and stay away from injuries.

    Future contenders should dominate Garcia the Gatekeeper.

    Garcia is a tough guy to look good against just because never stops attacking and usually manages to land at least a couple good shots. Matt Grice is the only one to actually fight him without any controversy in a long time.

    I guess KZ has no future then, i mean he didn't exactly dominate Garcia in the first fight...

    Also, he got dropped by Garcia

    10 days notice, he gassed in round 2 and Max still manages to win the fight and take Garcia's shots without even getting dropped

    I'd say you made a great prediction

    Incredible to remember that he had such trouble with Leonard Garcia, even if he did take the fight on short notice.
