I was impressed with the way he went immediately for mount and repeatedly reclaimed it after his opponent recovered half guard. That kind of focus on positional progression is what a lot of wrestlers struggle with initially.Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

LMFAO!!! His fucking coach dropped him after trying to pick him up, XD!!!
Stand up wise, he has a lot to learn, but hopefully we'll see more of him, I was really impressed at how technical and precise his takedowns and ground game were.
