    Haven't seen him fight ? Is he a lay and pray fighter?

    Am I missing something? They are scheduled to fight at "Budo 19" in March.

    Looks very promising, great power... The only pause is that he fights at 185, and he's only 5'11". de Lima can use his size to bully him in the clinch.

    Probably had a fight scheduled outside of the UFC when he got the call up, Sherdog just hasn't taken it down yet, has happened before with other fighters making their debut.

    Seems like they have been trying really hard lately to find LHWs, which is awesome.

    Cool, seems like an exciting fighter. I wasn't trying to be a dick or anything, just looked up the fight on Sherdog and thought, "this is a weird fucking troll job"

    Is he moving up then? Since De Lima is a LHW.

    Stop getting fighters for the U.K., they consistently disappoint

    I would imagine, there's no way de Lima can make 185.

    Philips is a fun fighter to watch. Not the most well rounded of fighters but he's great fun on the feet and has some big power. Interested to see how he fares at Light Heavyweight as to me he seems like he'd be undersized but I hope he does well.
