    he's been dominant against 1-dimensional strikers (irvin, sakara, and houston). but this time he was actually in trouble, came from behind and finished a game fighter by out striking mendes and out grappling him.

    he's ready for a much bigger test. bring on machida. :squint:

    imo they should give him chuck or wandy to decide for a title, or him and machida to see who gets a title

    I know him and wandy would fight eachother, but witht he amount of match ups that are possible, I doubt they would make two ex chute boxe guys fight eachother.

    i want to see him fight rashad.

    I thought he was done in, what was that, round 1? To not only recover, but win decisively like he did was nice. I can't wait to see how he does against some of the marquee fighters. :cool:

    Yup. He had very impressive top control. And his punches from mount were very impressive.

    That guy he fought had some iron shins though, he kept getting dropped by those crazy kicks.
