    He looked pretty good against Elias Silverio. I don't expect him to reach heights unless he works towards a BJJ BB or something but he could be in some good fights.

    He's a decorated muay Thai fighter and his body kicks looked really good.

    TDD was pretty good. Striking was great. Silverio is no slouch, and he handled him pretty well I thought. Good prospect.

    I can't have high hopes for someone who lost to Makdessi but at least he beat Silverio.

    I was impressed with Campbell's striking, cardio and grappling, Silverio is a great fighter.

    Yup Makdessi needs to drop to featherweight.

    Was a very good performance. Silverio is pretty highly touted.

    i agree that his striking looked good but he also looked slow as fuck compared to other LWs like barboza, MJ, Pettis & RDA just to name a few.

    Thats why i dont think he will break the top 10

    Solid win. Campbell's grappling surprised me.

    Read the title as Shane Carwin and then I was all confused when you started talking about his Muay Thai, lol. I missed Campbell's fight but it can be interesting seeing a guy who has competed in different styles of fighting crossing over to MMA.

    I was very surprised he beat Silverio. Look forward to seeing him again.

    I thought he looked great! I wanted to make a thread, but got caught up in the PBP threads...
