I think he is a fantastic prospect, and he looked great in his fight with Curran. Look forward to his progression.

I picked him to win.  He is getting high visability fights against legit competition, I imagine he's on Joe Silva's radar.

Beating a vet in Curran should be enough to give him a shot. With his unblemished record im sure it wont be long. RFA is going the direction of being the minor leagues of UFC. We have gotten Thatch , Rhodes , Pettis already. I think the UFC/RFA relationship will be good for both companies.

My favorite Bantamweight outside the UFC, I hope he gets the call really soon!

I think so. Bantamweight has taken a bit of a hit with some of the top level guys like Jorgensen and Pickett moving down to flyweight. They need to shore up that division more than any other right now I think, not counting the women's division.

I think it's a strong possibility the UFC grabs him up with a win. I think he'll get the win but I'm not as sure if it'll be as easy as the 98% that are taking Munhoz. If I remember correctly Billy Daniels had a bit a hype behind him as well before his injury derailed him.

I think they'll bring him in as an injury replacement. Seems to be how most lesser known fighters make their way onto the UFC roster.
