This guy is fighting Edson Barboza @ UFC on FX 7.  I don't know much about him, other than the fact that he made his pro debut in Sept. 2011 and has 12 fights since then, all wins.

He fought 10 times in 2012!  

How good is he?

I know he's an exciting prospect. I have only seen I think 2 of his fights but from what I've seen he is a very solid, entertaining striker. He also has a jumping headkick KO. Phone Post

Well I guess we know he's not on Barboza's level.

Martins looked like a work in progress. Just technically raw and way too small for 155.
