I knew his hands were fast and powerful. I knew he could dispatch lesser opponents in good time. But that footwork. That head movement. That ability to play his poker slower than the tortoise... I was as impressed as I was surprised. His recognition and reflexes when it came to transitions within the stand up game as well as from striking to wrestling... phenomenal. And he showed all this against one of the two best strikers in that division. Dude has come out of nowhere with these skills. Am I blind? Was this obvious to everyone else? P.S. Seems like a good guy too. Quite the opposite of a 'neck-tat douche' whatever that is Edit: HAPPY NEW YEAR SHERDOG!
