    I will be rooting for anybody fighting Danny "Prison rules" Castillo.

    One of the greatest boxers of all time was named the Italian Dragon.

    Since the dragon is taken by Machida, it's not too bad I say

    Haha, only in the mouth.

    Paul is a vicious kicker, no one likes sparring with him in the gym.

    I was a believer too that he'd be a future factor from his debut. He displayed good balance and strength to stay up against a wrestler who was getting a fair amount of praise himself beforehand. And when he got space he showed an explosive, fundamental kickboxing game. Doesn't seem like a guy who has much for a ground game/guard. But off what we've seen he should at least be a Cruickshank level guy, if not Barboza. I am picking him for the upset against Castillo, although it might be too much too soon. Barboza should have drawn with him as it was, and 2nd fight in his UFC career you figure that would have been a loss.

    He has a very good defensive guard that he uses to stand. He has good defensive ability and is always looking to get back up. Training with Daniel Gracie his ground game is greatly improving, he's about at a very high blue/ low purple belt level. He won't be subbing guys like crazy.

    Wasn't too impressed with him against Saggo. Got taken down a lot and rocked badly at the end of the fight. Good fundamentals on the feet but I didn't see anything special there. Danny will lay on him 2/3 rounds
