It is on the surface, but bear in mind his young age, his physical gifts, and the division in which he fights. Most guys that big and talented do other sports.

Also, Tim Hague got called back up after just a few wins. And this is a guy who, you know, no knock on him but he's a regional kind of guy. He's used to being bigger, stronger, and craftier on the ground. He starts getting hit by the better strikers and he's gonna crumble.

Don't get me wrong, the Russow and Overweem fights derailed the Duffee train significantly, but he's good enough to be in the UFC and we'll see if any of the alleged attitude issues have been resolved.

I think there are better HW out there than Duffee. He is one dimensional, and 53 seconds of action since his last UFC fight is hardly proving himself. At 27 he is 3 years older than Struve and one year younger than JDS, and nowhere near their levels of all round skills at their ages. He brings nothing to the division in my opinion, other than lighting up a few mid ranked 20+ fighters, he will struggle against any of the top 15 - 20 ranked and bottled it big time against The Reem. Saying that, he is ranked number one in super fight league.

SFL Rankings

1...Todd Duffee
2...James Thompson
3...Neil Grove
4...Bobby Lashley
5...Jimmy Ambriz
