Yeah, but his K1 days were some time ago and his Beerbohm and Jim Miller losses really showed a much SLOWER Bang than in the past. There's no argument that he's got great striking technique, I feel he's really lost a couple steps and would ultimately be exposed against the much younger and quicker Stout.
One guy I'd love to see either of these guys fight is Josh Neer, who I think was WAY prematurely dumped by the UFC. He's gonna have a helluva time against Alvarez, but I think he's got a sick skillset at his disposal. If only he could leave MFS.
