What fighters has he built from the ground up or dramatically improved? Maybe Pac, but I think you can make a good case for Ariza's conditioning being the difference there. He's had a lot of big names for a fight or two and they move on. I like his calmness in the corner during fights but he doesn't seem to give good advice. And during interviews he appears to be an egotistical trash talker.
