    I think he identifies as Blackzilian.

    Hopefully its a good fit for his career.

    I think it will help him become a better fighter for sure.

    Did you just assume his racial identity? Triggered.

    Really? MMA Lab seemed a great fit for him. Hooft should definitely help with his striking though. Watch out Cerrone, liver shots incoming.

    That's very interesting, Hooft is legit. I look forward to his fight against Cowboy.

    Cool. The Blackzilians has a good set of coaches in Hooft and Melanson and a solid stable of fighters. Rick Story is a nice addition and a good training partner for all the other guys there.

    He is actually quite underrated. Beast of a fighter.

    I like Cerrone more as a fighter but I think Story can beat him.

    His wrestling, pressure and body shots are enough to beat Cerrone by decision imo. Cowboy is too tough to finish.

    However the Cowboy who just destroyed Cote looks like the best I've ever seen. Tough fight to call.

    I'm very excited as a fight fan for this fight.

    He is underrated. He's just very inactive so people sometimes disregard him. He beat USADA era Jonhy Hendricks.
