Pretty much a formality at this point, we knew he had an offer. I want to see an opponent announcement.

Regardless of whether he lives up to the hype or not, he is just what the UFC MW division needed.

Finally, lets see how he does, no warm up fights. Throw him to the wolves and see if he lives up to the hype.

Haha, ruffled some feathers have I? Look, he's good. Great even. Aggressive little bastard with bricks in his gloves and great great Judo. But I see way too many people saying he would murder the top guys in the MW division. I think he will be among the top MW's, but I do think he will fall short of expectations. 

But nonetheless, a good acquisition by the UFC
