    Yes I did mention that he is untested, however I don't think that is reason enough to write him off. McCorkle had a good record but anyone who actually watched his fights knew he wasn't a world beater. It's a been a while since someone int he heavier weightclasses has looked as good as Liam has, even against low competition.

    He is interesting because of his size and because of his ability to attack on the feet and on the ground. He has looked far more dominant than McCorkle or any other recent prospect did.

    That guy who couldn't make it into the TUF house lost a very close decision to the guy who went on to win the show, not embarrassing imo.

    Fair, I just think he is one of the more interesting future opponents for Jones.

    Maybe he can br a yhreat to jones down the line...but it is too early to assume...he sud first get into the UFC...so many cases where undefeated fighters cud not deliver...or won against the good ones but failed against the elites...u can take the example of miles jury...he was undefeated...beat sanchez pretty well butngit humilated and spanked by cerrone...but again...u cant judge...everyone starts frm the small leagues:)

    Wow are you serious? saw this Victor Ortiz look alike twice or three times, he's fun to watch and that's it, he can't hang with the big boys.

    Hopefully he gets active after winning the Bellator title...

    He could have wins over Newton, Tito and King Mo by the end of the year, which would certainly garner him some attention.

    Weidman is no where near as good as a wrestler than DC
