That's how I always saw it too. It's his heart and energy in his losses that have made him "exciting" (such as his fights with Diego and Bendo). In his wins, he largely just takes you down and stays there without advancing, although his wild hair on top makes it look like he is (e.g., his wins against Diaz, Danzig, Pettis, Hioki). This is not to say that he has actually had some good showings (e.g., his wins against Gugerty and Gomi), but largely this is what he does.
I think Mendes beats him up like Bendo.
