did you actually see his last fights, or do you mean looking at his record. His record is actually pretty solid for a guy new to the bigger venues...but I'm curious if you were able to get any of his previous fights.

Well, beating Cro Cop is a much bigger deal than beating Jardine, so I'm giving Gonzaga more credit, if he and Alexander have to be compared.
I wouldn't even put Jardine top 15 in the weight class...he fought a smart fight against Griffin, but I think Forrest would take the next 2, if they fought to a rubber match...and I don't think Forrest is particularly good.
