I'm not saying that he will be holding the belt anytime soon, but I think he could rise to the role of someone like Fitch who is pretty close to holding the title

his grappling is pretty meh. his striking is above average. i dont see anything that really makes him stand out.

Ben is a damn good guy for one.

He has quite good yet awkward striking and some pretty good jitz. Last I trained with him his wrestling wasn't half bad either and I'm sure he's gotten alot better since then.

sounds cliche, but he seems like he has a ton of heart. One of the few TUFers I have been disappointed to not see in regular rotation.

Saunders was sick as fuck, most fighters wouldn't have fought in the first place, Saunders almost had him in an armbar (and a triangle too?) and Speers still couldn't finish him despite his illness

always liked this guy's attitude, win or lose :cool:


and me thinks he should move up to middleweight for his build

besides kneeing the shit out of that guy at FFTT (who was overmatched), what has he done to make you think he'd even get within a fart's sniff of a title?

he's 7-0...they've given title shots for less *cough*lesnar*cough*

and he's fairly early into his pro career...sammo didn't say he should get a title shot soon, just that saunders may one day be the champ

170 is stacked while HW is not. Lesnar is also a huge draw and can bring in dollars whereas Sanders cant. The lack of contenders at HW and the attention Lesnar brings are the reasons why he received a title shot, not to mention his ridiculous athleticism.
