I seriously believe Vinny's about to make a hard run at LHW this time around. His standup has significantly improved, appearing immensely more comfortable on his feet and with his size for LHW coupled with probably the best BJJ at 205, I think he's a tremendously difficult out.
He's been training with the right people since he left the UFC at Xtreme Couture and has really shored up his weaknesses.
A Lil Nog/Pezao fight would be hella fun and IMO, Vinny's wrestling is good enough now, that I think alot of the mid-level LHWs just get taken to school. Bonnar's a good matchup if they'd against Griffin III, ditto Janitor if they want to test where Vinny's at.
