    This guy always stood out to me from his time in TUF. He was a pretty crisp striker that seemed to have a lot of promise. He had a bit of a rough run in the UFC and then dropped off completely. He fought a couple of months ago and was able to get a win. Here's hoping he can get on a nice streak and be called up to Bellator or the UFC. I really hope he does. He was sexy as hell!

    He was definitely a guy the UFC should have kept around, he had potential from the start. All 3 losses were very good, close fights.

    I can understand them cutting him after 3 losses, but I'm still wondering why he took 5 years off

    Slick Nick! Dude has a lot of talent. Very sharp striker with solid all around grappling.

    For those that don't know, he left MMA for awhile to clear his head and study different martial arts around the world.

    He's one of the few MMA fighters that has blended in Tai Chi (Taijiquan) body mechanics into his combat style. He came back to MMA earlier this year. He won by 1st round submission. I believe he'll be coming back to UFC in early 2016.

    I think I highlighted a thread about him just before his last fight in Milton Keynes.....don't think I called him sexy though.

    Yeah I know it had nothing to do with MMA, but just wanted to throw that in there.

    I remember reading somewhere that he had trained as an artist, he had become a resident artist for a magazine or something. A resident artist for something or other. He also was doing colour commentary for BAMMA. And being sexy.

    He's already returned to MMA a few months ago. He won in the 1st round. It's an organization called "Macto Championships". He said he wants to return to UFC in less than a year. He's only 30 years old, he's got plenty of time.

    and here's his fight with Matt Riddle, applying Tai chi structure in MMA.

    He was Kung Fu champion on his wiki. If it isn't Sanda/Sanshou stuff like Cung Lee what exactly does the Kung Fu champ do?

    He's been recovering from a broken orbital sustained in the Macto fight. He's been back in the gym training himself and other fighters.
