I don't think we've seen all the tricks up Thurman's sleeve just yet. He's fighting aggressive and powerfully because his opponents haven't been at his level. I think we'll see a much more measured fighter who pays more attention to defense once the level of his opposition moves up a notch or two. His natural style is really more boxer-puncher than brawler, but we haven't seen that too much yet because he's been able to blast his recent opponents out of there.
