I personally dont see Vinny doing any better this time than he did last time.

I just dont think his skill set works in the UFC's LHW division. The guys in the division are just to big and strong that most of the time you dont see submissions

I completely agree, the ufc is a big jump from an organization where he was fighting guys with sub par submission defense.

It will be good to see him in the octagon again. I just hope he's really improved. His ground game is phenomenal
