He's developing very quickly and has an interesting body type. He's outstanding on the ground and proved he can strike as well in his most recent ko over Martin. I definitely think he'll win the WW tournament and prove to be Askren's toughest opponent to date.

EDIT: His brother is off to a great start as well.
