    No point in paying a big contract to a guy who might lose to every top 20 lhw he faces.

    Better off letting him develop and prove he can hang with ok grapplers before you put in a big investment.

    Pretty much this. And his camp is awesome. But I just dunno if he wants to put the time in to commit to being a great MMA fighter as he already makes quite a bit of money in Europe from kickboxing, though Glory is bringing him to the US more often and paying him a lot as well.
    This.

    Today? Nowhere. Hadn't beaten anybody in the UFC yet.

    In two years he could be champ who knows.

    Well he obviously has great stand up and he is training on the ground with guys like Vitor, Rashad, etc., so he is getting world class MMA ground game lessons on a daily basis from some of the best in the business. I highly doubt he's a complete amateur on the ground and I believe he can be a title holder in the future.

    I think he'll get KO by an MMA fighter in the next 2 years if he fights good enough competition.

    They should match him up against Mike Kyle in WSOF.

    I really want to see how he developes. I was kind of impressed with his last opponent's ability to stay in there.

    Not even that. WSOF pays him 31k with a 9k win bonus. And who knows how long they will even be around? It is amazing they are still doing shows.

    It comes down to does he want Glory or UFC and full time MMA.
