Also, he is training with real camps now, rather than basically just ****ing around with friends. His game should look tighter than ever, and hopefully some cardio issues will be resolved.
For as talented a fighter as Gegard is id expect to see him not look like a beetle on his back. His TDD is non-existent. Iv watched that guy get routinely taken down again and again in many fights. Its certainly something he needs to work on if he wants to be successful in the UFC.
On his feet though whomever is at the other end of the Octagon has their work cut out. And that includes Spider.
