His opponent is 2-0 walking into this fight with both wins coming inside a minute.

I trained with this kid once or twice haha he went to the same kickboxing group as me, not my club but I know his kickboxing club and trainers etc.

Cant wait for the first competent fighter this guy takes on to dryhump the life out of him... I'm tired of seeing him feel the need to embarrass guys clearly not on his level when he's fighting in the SFL

Come to the midwest and do that please.

Overrated , real doubtful that this guy ever becomes the next big thing, more likely the next big flop.

Overrated? The kid is only 4-0. You want him to bed fed to UFC calibur fighters straight out the gate?

I only have one name to bring people back down to Earth when hyping a new face: Houston Alexander

Let's see the man get tested.

Bring him to lower tier American shows and watch those twinkle toes point to the ceiling all fight long. He is being way too cocky to guys he's obviously overmatching.

True, but then you also have guys like Jon Jones who deserved all the hype.

Jones did, but had a wrestling base. Anderson took years to even make his expert striking MMA efficient let alone his JJ. This guys gonna have 2-3 years before we even know if we should start calling this guy anything special.

Any one of us can look like that with a cocky style against opponents that weak.

Oh this guy may deserve the hype, but that remains to be seen at this point. Hype is so easily achieved in MMA based on a few great performances, but so many, when tested, don't live up. Someone like Chris Weidman, who I personally feel has a lot to prove still, but has deserved the hype train he's gotten, because he has shown he can take on serious competition.

This guy is going to get KTFO eventually and I'm really going to enjoy it.

I've seen the kid fight a few times he has a ton of talent but keeps his hands way to low that will get him caught eventually

He reminds me of Jamie Yager, and I think he breaks when he gets pushed, his stand-up is going to be something special when he tones it down but he hasn't shown anything we haven't seen in gym's all around the world. He keeps his hands too low and holds his chin too high, and he'll probably get crushed.

Combined records of his first three guys he fought. 0-7

He just beat a guy who has two victories over guys with no wins on their record.

I agree hes nothing special. That side stance is going to get him dumped on his head. What weight is he fighting at?

Another Brit that will shit the bed the first time he faces anyone that's ever drilled a takedown during practice.

Likely, but also we have no idea how good his ground game is. He could be "The British Demain Maia" too!
