    didn't see any threads on him at all after his performance

    i was really impressed with this guy for as small as he is his talent made up for it he was crisp technical striking,very good tdd,and when taken down got back to his feet,very brutal leg kicks aswell

    he pretty much tooled his much larger opponent

    He's very good but not typically in great fights. Underrated mostly because he's not the most exciting.

    I expected better from him.

    Did good but can't say his stock lifted with that fight.

    He's one of the most underrated fighters in the ufc IMO.

    He's alright. Had a close fight with McDonald though, that's something?

    Give him Benavidez next.

    This is what I'm thinking, even though Joe B would likely finish him.

    Cariaso did say he wanted a top guy.

    Agreed, not too many other options for Benavidez at the moment either.

    I thought he lost his fights against Martinez and Mizugaki. Although he looked really good in his last fight, he's never impressed me much.

    Then again... He was making Moraga look silly before getting choked out, and Moraga became a title contender not long after.

    If Chris waits, they could wind up doing the Cariaso vs Pickett/McCall matchup, just to give the winner of the Dublin fight another name on their resume (I'd favor both over Cariaso.) then, make Benavidez/Gaudinot for the San Jose card. At least, that's what I hope.

    I think most people thought he lost against Miz. If I remember correctly, Takeya was also paid his win bonus, according to the ufc 144 post fight conference.

    He should be more aggressive he actually was far too much defensive in the first 2 rounds, let himself even get bullied in the clinch by taller fighter. He should easily take him down i think. Maybe doesn't posses killer instinct.

    If he's willing to wait, maybe winner of Scoggins/Ortiz?

    I was thinking the same, or give him Horigouchi.

    Always liked Chris. Glad to see he's putting it all together.

    I completely forgot about that matchup. That's a good call too!

    I thought he looked really good. Good scrap, too.
