    Was a bit of hype for a while but he has had losses, draws and some wins but it seems he cant stay consistent.

    Perhaps just an exciting fighter, nothing more?

    Maybe one day
    But he's very exciting, and that's what matters

    Exciting and fun fighters to watch don't always equal to elite fighters or even good fighters.

    I feel like he’s actually regressed as a fighter. First few fights in the ufc he looked awesome but not so much since. Incredibly exciting tho

    I still can’t believe Tony come back in that fight. Lando beat the devil out of him

    He's too willing to throw down and disregards defence too much, he gets hit a lot sometimes because he simply has his hands down. It's exciting but it doesn't win him fights.

    it was really about a 60-80 second flourish in the first round where tony still hadnt recovered from the initial blows, the other 3 1/2 min were close with tony landing just as much as lando. Lando just couldnt finish when he landed some big shots and tony completely dominated the second round.

    Lando is similar to Cowboy in aspects, he's frustratingly awesome

    Lando is in to bring it for the JBG.
    He always delivers entertaining fights and is not greed on CTE.
    Elite or not I'll always watch his fights

    I think he is an elite fighter just he lacks boxing. He has problems with fighters who have better boxing and pressure him. I am afraid i have doubts he will improve that much more, i am not saying its impossible just i see it as a bit unlikely that he will become much better then he is now. His coaches needs to see this problem and he needs to work a lot on it.

    I'd have Lando over any elite boring fighter.
    Not putting yourself in risk doesn't mean you're a good/technical fighter, only that you're too coward for your job, we don't know how good you are under pressure.

    Still, no need for a exclusive brawling championship-o.

    he reminds me of the new erick silva. flashes of brilliance, mixed in with the occasional devestating loss.

    His defense and standup won't improve enough at Jackson's.
    He will get better the next 3 years, but he gets hit too often. After that downhill fast
