Don't know how good he is exactly, but yeah, he's got a background in both Judo and Wrestling to go alongside his striking. Both of his parents are Judokas.

That versatility was what settled things for me and made me make the switch. Do regret not picking Nguyen, but any dude that loses to Aalon Cruz is no friend of mine.
