I'm really liking the way he fights, he's long, has good kicks and swarms when his opponents show that they are hurt. He could add a lot of variety in terms of potential match-ups in the ufc. It would replenish the dormant Welterweight division. He has so many potential match-ups that make sense. Koscheck and Hazzelet are fights I would love to see. Tell me what you guys think about him and if he his ready for the ufc,

He seems legit so far. He has some very nice wins under his belt. I'd say try and lock him up before Strikeforce does.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I always want the ufc to add anyone who can enter the cage.... More fighters means more potential match ups, and more potential WARS

Hornbuckle is one tough ass dude, he definitely belongs in the UFC with the rest of the elite fighters.

I love Dan Hornbuckle he's my main prospect. and has badass hair. I think he should've been in the American Team in last season of TUF

Some other fighters the US team should have looked at:
Michael Guymon
Lyman Good
Jorge Masvidal
Dave Jansen
Nate Jolly

Hornbuckle is a pretty bad dude.

Hornbuckle looks like a very promising prospect. i'd love to see him fight Marius Zaromskis at Dream 12.

Hornbuckle and Gamebreed definately!

Seems like the real deal to me. Two big wins over quality opponents.

He'd be a better addition than any TUF n00b fighter with a little or no fights (which seems to have been a recent trend in the UFC)

The first time I saw Dan was the second Sengoku I think, against Mike Pyle. I thought he looked like he had a bit of a padded record, but seemed pretty tough--very aggressive. In his past two showings though he's looked outstanding.

Hits very hard, particularly his kicks, pretty flexible on the ground--he seems very determined and tenacious--and also pretty comfortable and loose in the ring. I think he could work a little on his footwork--he can get a little flatfooted, and allows himself to get cornered, and maybe tighten up his ground game a little. He's definetely ready for the UFC--I kind of see him as a very similar fighter to Alan Belcher--not quite as talented, but very much in the same vein. Definetely looking forward to seeing more of him--he's a pretty exciting fighter.

Everyone seems to forget Zaromskis's fights against Ch'e Mills...MMA fans have short memories. Marius got destroyed both times. IMO he really is being overrated right now. Yes, he's a good fighter, but nowhere good as what people think he is.

I think a fight between the two would be competitive, but eventually Hornbuckle would find an opening and finish Marius. He would weather the storm early and take him down and finish him off with strikes.

Zaromskis was tooling Mills on the feet in their first fight and really just got caught. i'm not making an excuse, that's MMA. i haven't seen the 2nd fight so i can't comment on that. but i know Che Mills is a talented guy so 2 losses to him doesn't really hurt Zaromskis in my opinion. he has some very dangerous stand up and is coming off 2 wins against quality opponents in Sakurai and Jason High. Hornbuckle is also coming off 2 wins over quality guys in Gono and Thompson. a match up between Zaromskis and Hornbuckle seems like the right match up for both of them right now.
