    If he is victorious against Manuwa and decides to say at 205lbs how far do you see him progressing. Obviously a powerful striker, do you see him reaching the Top of the division or not?

    Dunno he said he was gunna put the hurt on his last opponent who just came out the contender series and he doesn’t seem like he has the gas tank, just couldn’t finish him...

    Depends on a couple things, mainly, does his chin hold up better now that he's not cutting so much weight? If he has more durability, combined with the power he already has, he'll be a force to be reckoned with.

    Sadly, I think the only advantage he'll have at LHW is his speed.

    I agree, he completely dominated the guy but for one reason or another could put him away like he has done to so many other middleweights.

    He is a very entertaining fighter but not championship material his chin failed him several times already now .

    His chin would be his main disadvantage IMO, Branch hasn’t starched anyone like than standing in his entire career.

    His chin seems really bad.

    In the fight against Anthony Smith he barely got tagged and was stanky legging.

    If his chin is related to the big weight cut at MW then cracking LHW top 10 is pretty likely. LHW is a ghost town.

    Dude kevin holland is pretty good. Even dana white said he hated the guy and that fight proved to him that he was legit. That fight was fun as hell.

    Entertaining, flawed fighter. Has the striking skill and power to take out anyone though if everything goes right.
