    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.

    ONE FC Results today:

    Mauro Cerilli moves to 14-4 with a 2nd round TKO of the previously 12-1 Vagabov (seems like he was a proper can-crusher!).

    Oumar 'Reug Reug' Kane is now 2-0, he finished Ngalani via 1st round TKO (ground and pound).

    Apparently Buchecha will face him in his first MMA fight in one month, that could end pretty ugly for him.

    also, a few hours ago Rasulov folded Smoldarev with a bizarre punch
    moves up to 21-7, would like to see him and Alikhan Vakhaev fight next

    Got my eye on this card for sure. I'm very impressed with Cunha so far, but to see if he can replicate what he usually does against a good Russian fighter is going to be interesting.
