Jake O'Brien is a young fighter and a win over Heath Herring whether it was a LnP decision or not is a win why wouldnt the UFC want to build up a young UFC guy who has a win over a former Title CHallenger??

stingers, shit with your back. Not even impressed with jake, so not too worried about him actually being a contender in the HW division.

Good wrestler, but a VERY boring fighter. I hope he's OK, but I never want to see him in the UFC again. It's nothing but takedown after takedown after takedown ... with no ground game. 10x's worse than a Sherk fight. (my opinion).

But yes, he has some spinal injuries that can paralyze you if not addressed.

I have to agree also. I think alot of people base Jake's capabilities particurly off his fight with Herring. I think he has much more potential than he showed in that fight. 10-0 with 8 of those wins coming by KO or TKO. All but 1 of those 8 came in the very first round. Based off of those stats, I think it's fair to say he has the potential to make for some exciting fights.
