    What can I say, Im a huge fan of the guy, maybe the only one on Sherdog! He is probably never going anywhere near a title shot, I totally get it, but I just love watching him fight. He has great kicks and wicked fast twitch movement when he jumps into shots. I always feel that a guy like him should have way more wins based on his skill level. He reminds me of whittaker in some ways the way he jumps in and out of action, just not as good as reaper all around.
    Im fully expecting crickets here.

    He's still moving and grooving despite his age I must say (38yo)

    He has had a bunch of fights which ended in like freak injuries and whatnot though, for a period of time I almost expected it to happen when he fought lol

    Straight posture is actually bad for fighting because it leaves your chin too high

    Nordine has a lot of talents, its just that sometimes he struggles to mix all those to deliver a coherent performance.
