    Strongass ground and pound, but he has submissions also. He's 12-5 and he has never been stopped in a fight, this should be pretty good.

    This guy looks tough. Thanks for the vid because I didn't know who this guy was. He looks agressive like Diego and probably stronger so I'm looking foward to this one already.

    He does look strong and aggressive, but the level of competition he's facing also plays a factor in that. I don't think he'd look as tough while fighting Fitch, koscheck, or Parisyan. I don't think this will be a GREAT fight. I think Diego is going to walk away with this fight.
