    The Al Capone returns to the Octagon against arguably the most boring fighter in the UFC Francimar Barroso. The bout is scheduled for Rotterdam event.



    I think Krylov may just suffer the first decision of his career, because Barroso is just all clinch-y, grind-y and hasn't been finished since 2011.

    What do you think?

    Krylov is a top LHW prospect.. Super young and impressive.

    Krylov will bomb him out of there in the first.

    Since moving to LHW, he has only had one bad performance, against OSP. His biggest weaknesses have been his cardio and ground game, and he has definitely improved his ground game. He is young, and LHW is shallow, so I could definitely see him becoming top 10.

    Also, OSP almost got Glover with that same Von Flue choke.

    Impressive? He is one of the few fighters in UFC history to have the honor of being put to sleep by a Von Flue choke, so he's got that going for him. And that was by a fighter whose success has less to do with his skills and more to do with his athleticism.

    so? He was 22 yrs old at the time, just got into the UFC. Have u watched his fights after that? Or some even before that.

    He headkick knocked out the HW derrick lewis (not that his a big talent, but he is huuge with power). Nikita has also shown insane improvement from back that to his last couple of fights.

    Just you wait, in a couple of years he will be top 10. Easily. I bet u were doubting McGregor when he first arrived the scene aswell, right? ;) mhm..

    He head kicked Walt Harris I believe, he's got some deadly striking.
