Mein seems to be improving at a ridiculous pace. Does he have the best hands at welterweight?

Way too early to tell.  They did look amazing though.  Watch Bisping (who has decent boxing) vs Miller and then watch Mein vs Miller if you wanna see how good Jordan's striking is.

His standing elbows are something special, at any rate I find him to be the most exciting striker at 170.

I was so impressed with this kid. He just walked through Dan Miller. He's definitely up there.

He looked great, but let's not rush this. He needs time to acclimate to the new talent pool and further develop.

I'd like to see him fight Tarec Saffiedine. Is that rushing things?

Agree. I hope they bring him along slowly and don't throw him to the wolves. He's young and has a ton of potential. Putting away Miller like that was a great way to come into the UFC. Phone Post

Yes he is very young and I don't disagree with not rushing him along, but the kid has been training MMA has long as he could walk, with his dad running a gym in Lethbridge. He's plenty experienced in the fight game as a young age Phone Post

I think so, as most pundits have Tarec in the top 10 at WW and I'm not quite sure if Mein is ready for that kind of challenge.  If I had to guess I'd say they match him with a wrestler - maybe someone like Rick Story. 

If they don't deside to take that route, I'd love to see him fight Thiago Alves.

I definitely want to see him matched up with a good striker. 

Some names that I think would make sense:

 

Cote

Hardy

Brown

Swick

Alves

Interesting fact, Mein has lost to Mike Ricci and Rory Macdonald.

The Ricci one was a while ago though, he'd handle him now.

The Macdonald loss was his debut! Talk about a tough start. Phone Post

Too soon for Mein. Also TTT
I don't understand while people say to soon for guys like Mein and Rory. They've been training since they were kids and fighting since they were 15, that's almost 10 years fighting experience. Phone Post

If Mein avoided the ground with Diaz, it could get interesting. Basically a boxing match. I'd give it to Mein on the feet better defensively, Diaz takes too much unnecessary damage.
