    I keep hearing people talk about him but I haven't seen him fight. I heard he's a dominant wrestler. Is anything like Hughes? I really miss watching Hughes pick people up, run across the cage and slam them. It seems like we don't have any dominant wrestlers like that in the UFC anymore.

    You should really do your own research and judge for yourself getting a unbiased opinion here for or against the man can prove difficult, I personally want grab a pillow when I view his fights he's like Ambien for the eyes.

    His striking is the weak point of his game, but he isn't a Jake Shields either. He's got some nice GnP as well.

    Well I was kinda hoping people would post links to highlights and free fights. If he has 22 fights I'm sure he must have some free fights somewhere.

    He will be really popular until the first loss. Then he will be forgotten like his buddy Rustam.

    My face when Khabib drastically improves his striking by the time the Pettis fight comes along.
