His stand up is good. His submission game is good but I have seen him be "handled" by a few wrestlers. I would like to see him have better ground control for a champion contender. Experience in the octagon with some higher level fighters will bring that.
I dont think the UFC will pit him up against Rashad soon. Probably set up some more fodder for him. Once the Europe trail is blazed then we will see some serious competition for him.
