    He is the tallest lankiest guy in the heavyweight division, I feel like he should work on standing elbows Jones style and more recently like Condit in the Alves fight. Why doesn't he try to use them???

    He should probably work on his range before anything else.

    He's not very bright. No disrespect to him. But he just doesn't know how to get the full potential out of his body type.

    He's the Paul Williams of MMA with less success.

    He has been...His jab in the 3rd round was looking excellent, his takedown defense looked amazing tonight also. He's approving and was a good win for him tonight.

    He needs to learn to keep guys on the outside with that reach and a little take down defense wouldn't hurt either.

    He needs to pick up a book or watch some videos.

    He has zero theory based knowledge about fighting.

    Says and does as his coaches tell him and still can't do that correctly.

    He should try feinting some punches, what poor fluidity of strikes

    The panic attacks have fucked him unfortunately. You can tell he is only a shell in there.

    Yupp he's moving more and using techniques that go better with his body type but now he's got to learn to move "right." Still ends up on the fence more than he needs to be. I'm sure the Blackzilians are going to be looking into that right away. I still have hope in the Skyscraper.

    True, but as long as he is not able to cope with that elbows would be a great weapon for him close range. I agree with ts.
