It's funny because his frame is very much like an Anderson Silva or a Jon Jones. He's got some skills, for sure! If that last kick were juuuuust a little cleaner, that would have put dude's lights out and been one of the all time great KO's.

That sequined jacket thing the cage announcer was the nastiest thing since Rich Franklin's nose.

All he did for the first minute or so was run from his opponent.

For real though, that was pretty entertaining. Dude needs to learn how to keep his hands up though or his career will be short.

I hate to be a wet blanket but, His opponents stand up ability was shaky at best. i agree that he is talented and has potential. But I hate judging a fighter on one fight

I really don't like showboating like that, personally, but it's probably a good way to get noticed and potentially picked up by a bigger organization.

Kind of hard to tell if the guy is really all that good when both him and his opponent are 0-0. Obviously he has some striking ability, but it's pretty hard to tell things like how good his timing or footwork is, what his striking defense looks like against another striker, what his TD defense looks like against a good wrestler, etc. when he's doing silly dance moves against a guy in his first pro fight.

Not saying that he won't still be amazing, just that it's pretty difficult to judge based on 1 fight against a guy with no experience at all. That is an impressive debut but I'll wait until he fights a few more experienced guys before I make a judgement about his skill level. If he puts on a couple more performances like that though we will for sure see him in the UFC.
