Not familiar with this fella, he's a kickboxing world champion? What's his MMA record?
He has a real awkward style. I'm not sold on him, in fact I have doubts but I'm interested.
His leg kicks look disgusting.
He's not Izzy for sure, looks more Dutch oriented. Still looks like he'll be in fun fights for sure bro.
He might as well drop to 155 right now.
3 mma fights and good enough TDD for UFC WWs? Lets see if it works!

Interesting, will keep an eye on him. Also the UFC signing these New Zealander/Australian fighters who are just 3-0 is becoming a pattern haha. Justin Tafa, Carlos Ulberg, and now Mike Blood Diamond.
Yeah ive seen him fight many years ago. Tough and unpredictable he is like a smaller version of Stylebender.
welcome to USADA...... i mean the UFC.
That’s a nice record
Yoooo….. pumped to see his debut
Kickboxers typically don't do well in MMA.
The notable exceptions being Stylebender, Holly Holm, and a few that were in K1 and transfered over to Pride (Overeem & CroCop) but that was over a decade and a half ago.
Oh yeah... Paul Daley.
Other than that, I can't think of many others.
How old is he?
My thoughts exactly. Seems competent on the ground, but also seems like he would wilt under top heavy wrestlers (pure speculation of course)
His striking is definitely....awkward. Seems a bit sloppy and hittable though. Wonder how his chin will hold up against serious power.
Will be fun to see.
Hittable is how I see it as well. It seems like besides Izzy and Alex, some of the premier guys there don't like to move their head and feet. They try to be technical brawlers.
