    The bottom end of a ppv thanks to being the lnp hugging bjj master. Which skill wise is amazing but has less fight personality than those Reebok shorts.

    He could possibly have the best BJJ in all of MMA. It's crazy how screwed someone is once he gets a hold of them. Dude really needs to become a scary striker to fully utilize that though. This guy isn't lay and pray like GSP, he's actually amazing to watch.

    Ryan Hall vs. Beneil Dariush would be an interesting fight at 155 lbs.

    I am a huge ryan fan, but he is very far from being the best bjj fighter in all mma.

    If McGregor wins, give Hall a title shot. McGregor needs to avenge his butler Lobov, and Hall always has a chance to catch someone. Would be hilarious of Conor loses to leg lock.

    The best bjj in mma can choke out Artem Lobov.

    It's nice to see someone close the distance without the robotic, predictable wrestling spam. Too many fighters have a game that is too obvious. You need to use every creative ploy to get the fight to the ground, and some guys give up if they can't score an easy wrestling style take-down. Pulling guard is a perfectly reasonable thing to do if you are unable to take your opponent down. More fighters need to do it, but that would require the level of BJJ to improve in MMA. Guys come in with no primary style background, and play the MMA cliff notes game.

    I hope they build him up slow, he needs some time to close the gap between his overall MMA game and his BJJ. Lobov isn't exactly a phenom on the ground.
