I agree that he looked good. Not sure if he will be ready for a seasoned 20+ fights fighter yet. But what I do know is these younger guys who grew up watching UFC are officially here. I can't wait to see kids that are two years old now fighting in the UFC in 20 years with 15 years of wrestling, BJJ, kickboxing and weight training step into the fray. The bottom line is guys like Gustaffson/Jones/McDonald are a preview of things to come. Can't wait!

It was kinda boring but I'm glad the Swede won if only to here the boos from the all american crowd. Also, he looks kinda sexy.
