I'd like to see more ground work like a solid submission or two.
I really can't argue with him being a top 10, though. The rest of this tourny will clear it up.
Doesn't seem like much of a sub guy, but seems to have the smarts to avoid subs... Also has underrated wrestling, good TD's, and solid GnP... The way I see it, he's got a pretty effective "power boxing" style, but lately he's been showing that he's a more well rounded fighter... As soon as his opponents start worrying about TD's and his GnP, it's going to create a lot of openings in the standup game...
With all that being said, he's def top 10 in my book... I got him at 8, under kawajiri and above Florian... His only loss is to a really big welterweight in Nick Thompson, really the move down in weight is what solidified it for me... He gives most guys a super tough fight at 160lbs
