This guy is sick , I really think if he enters the UFC he could be a great gate keeper , He is 6 ' 5 300 pounds , he is 8 - 1 with 7 T(KO'S) and 1 VERBAL SUBMISSION FROM STRIKES !!!! He even has a win over current Cage Rage champ Tengiz , tell me your guys opinion on this rising young star

I think he could do ok in the UFC and maybe more than a gatekeeper.
(if he could make 265, I think he is in the low 300's somewhere)

I honestly don't think he could cut 30 pounds or so to enter the UFC.

Unreal hand speed for a huge man.
Aggressive fighter.

The fight against Pele is debatable whether it was stopped prematurely or not.

Needs to fight more regularly...

I do rate him though.
One to look out for.

He would be the biggest Heavyweight in the UFC if he could make the weight. I dont think he could though. He's a scary dude

He's too big, and the strikers of the division would be too much for him.
