Thomas de Almeida will either be slightly better Edson Barboza with better cardio or a legit top BW within 2 or 3 years. It is only either/or. No in between if he stays with his current camp. You see the potential and also the several mistakes he makes. The learning curve inside the UFC is going to be quite interesting to follow.

Watched part of the first round of Rivas/Rubio and it was bad enough I turned away from it.

Not really surprising though as most of these Latin American guys haven't really developed that much as fighters despite the amount of fights on their records.

Well, Bader was smart enough to not leap headlong into punches like he did against Machida and Glover and do what Shogun did tonight. Sometimes, you need a few wakeup calls (or brief in-cage power naps) to get the message.
