Without a doubt. His striking is far superior compared to guys like GSP, Hughes and Diego, he's much more of a strategical striker, very methodical like, he sets up his opponent and attacks relentlessly when they least expect it, resutling in a set up for a brutal takedown or just a straight knockout. I can also say with complete confidence that his wrestling skills are completely unmatched and on a completely different level than any other wrestler, yes, even Matt Hughes. He would tear his shit up something nasty (mind you, this coming from a huge Hughes fan) Another part of his game that doesn't get that much attention, but nonetheless very important is his mental game, really, the only word to describe it is world class. He uses tactics such as physical intimatidation, bullying tactics, intense staredowns to get inside the heads of his opponent, and mentally wear them down until they can't take anymore. This is a mark of a true professional. My prediction is that he takes the title at the first opportunity he gets, no matter who's holding it at that time, he will beat them in such a convincing fashion, nobody will ever want to step in the ring with him.
