Dude looks promising. Good record, put on a clinic against Thiago Alves a few months back. Guys is someone to look out for IMO. This weekend at UFC 226 he's the first fight on the FS1 prelims against Max Girffin. 30 years of age, he looks experienced and comfortable in there (Record of 15-3).
Definitely my pick for the Dark Horse in the WW division. He's also very dark-skinned so The Dark Horse would be a badass nickname for him!
This card is great even with the loss of Max Holloway vs. Ortego.
