    What is regarded as young? As in Football young is between say 15 and 21. but in mma iv always thought anyone under 30 is young and under 21 are special. lol

    I wasn't talking about Walter Gahadza or having a pop at your belief about him, the fact I replied to you talking about him didn't help, my bad!! I was just talking in general. There's loads of really dedicated, talented and tough guys taking part in MMA but the same is the case all over the world. I was just making the point that we tend to get excited about a certain guy over here, for them to fall short either just before they get to the UFC or if they make it they struggle. Reading that back that sounds quite negative, which isn't my aim, we're not in a bad place in terms of talent. I just think it's harder than people think it is to actually crack the big time in the UFC. I'm probably the worlds worst for getting a tad over excited with some of the Brits when they get to the UFC. I actually thought Che Mills might beat Rory MacDonald!!

    Walter Gahadza looks a bit like Jimi Manuwa, hope he's just as good. I'll have to look him up, haven't come across him before.

    Ah cool no bother. I got a bit confused when replied to me lol.

    I agree with you on the point you just made however. I'm one of the worst for over-matching fighters from here in near enough every "what's next?" type threads.

    Yeah so not one of them last in the UFC, when will people wake the fuck up, you need excellent wrestling or you'll never sniff a ufc title. Being a bjj/kickboxer doesn't work anymore, they just get taken down and grapple fucked for 15-25mins.

    ? So what, you're saying brazillian fighters are shite or that you can only be successful in the ufc with a wrestling base? I'll wake the fuck up as long as you stop spouting shite!
