    He was was 8 - 0 and nearly KOed Ferguson on a short notice fight. He had a ton of hype on Sherdog. He is still young but unless something changes, I cannot see him sticking around. Maybe a move to 145 or even 135 could help.....do you think this guy has a future with the UFC?

    Too slow for 135. He has 0 fight IQ and barely moves his head.

    Hes a 1 dimenrional fighter who gets marked up in every fight becuase he dont work on the holes in his game.

    i don't mind him but he's another example of when you ask yourself, "what the fuck does the UFC hang on to fighters like this for while they are willing to let go of Moose?"

    He puts on a show every time though...

    Room temperature fight iq, but at least he has heart and shοwmanship. Every PPV card needs at least one fighter like that imo...

    He's settled into the spot of action fighter, hardly the worst of fates. He'll never reach the heights that many hoped after his first two UFC showings, but he's bound to entertain along the way. Kind of like Joe Lauzon, but without the quality wins for now.

    The fall? When was the rise? He’s lived off dropping Tony for years.

    Agree with the others. Mainly just an exciting fighter ... however he is still young like Eric Silva

    He does eat a ton of shots in every fight, assured CTE if he does not work on his defense.

    After nearly beating Ferguson, Lando landed this KO kick in his next UFC fight. If you were around you would have seen page after page of Lando hype.

    Sorry. I wasn’t around then. I didn’t get an account here until 2007.

    Doesn’t explain how I missed all of Lando’s fights as you claim. (I didn’t. He just isn’t that good)

    He was with Jackson Wink last I knew is that still the case? Probably is due a new camp then, It feels like there's absolutely loads he could add to his game, and i'm no expert.
    Even his greatest highlight, the initial feint is sloppy as shit. Amazing follow up kick though.

    I think Lando is probably about a fifth of the cost of Moose, not that the two things are related.

    He left JacksonWink and went out to a satellite gym. He actually fought pretty differently against Medeiros, but he was the same old Lando last night.

    JW are awful these days. I think he’s still with them. He’d be good with Bang Ludwig.

    He just seems to lack any sort of killer instinct. I’ll be a fan forever after that short notice Ferguson fight, but he just seems content to move forward and eat a million shots. If he had a better fight IQ and killer instinct he could do a lot more than he does. Really puzzling.
