    He struggled with a 5'8 natural light/welterweight and didn't look good in either standup or on the ground, questionable cardio too. He's also not 6'11 but more like 6'4 (similar built like Augusto Sakai but a lot less skilled) with a lot of excess fat.

    Not a huge fan as outlined below. This kid from Mexico is decent, he's flabby as hell, but he hits like a truck. He's got that Roy Nelson fat guy power. https://www.tapology.com/fightcenter/fighters/198434-jesus-navarrete-el-tanque

    Smoldarev is one of those guys who has all the potential in the world, Imagine if he moved to the USA and started training at a top gym 5 years ago, he could have been a legit contender at HW.

    props for Smoldarev, gave Elkhan Musaev (now 6-1) a tough lesson in a wrestling heavy performance, moving up to 15-7, looked decent on the feet too but clearly size played a factor, Musaev is too small to implement his grinding style against guys who can wrestle

    I've been saying the same thing for years, the guy has all the physical tools.
