here we go again,
mma fans jumping on the band wagon!!
Did you read anyone's posts? Everyone in the thread said it is too early to tell how good of an all around fighter he is but that he put on an impressive performance. I don't see how this is jumping on a bandwagon.
All I said was that the one punch we did see from him was damn near picture perfect. Here you have a couple of guys who know their stuff about MMA, one of them a guy who trains people for a living. Far from jumping on the bandwagon, but definitely giving credit where credit is due.
When I see someone who is that young with that clean of technique, I definitely get excited. To me, it means several things
1) That even though he's young, he's already learned to control his nerves and use proper technique. Which says something about his maturity level
2) That when someone puts in the time and effort to develop technique like that, they're taking this very seriously, listening closely to their trainers, and they're approaching it all with some humility.
By no means am I saying he's the next heavyweight champ, but yeah, absolutely, I get excited when I see a guy like that. He's got room to grow and he's taking it seriously. What is there to not get excited about?
