    ^^ I disagree, Mizugaki was #10 on my BW list and now moves up a few spots with that win.. Thats his third straight and loses that happened to Jorge and Torres in early 2009 can't be thrown at him.

    Only guy to finish him was Faber and Faber is the #1 contender at BW and has been for awhile now..NO shame losing to him or Bowles. Mizugaki is one tough SOB who doesn't get finished or give anyone an easy fight.. Still a gatekeeper but establishing himself as solid contender at 135 again.

    I disagree.

    Mizugaki is a SOLID veteran but not a top level guy. He's lost to Jorgensen, Torres, Faber and Bowles.

    He's a tough guy but he uses the typical straight up and down Japanese style that should have been a custom fit for Perez to KO. He couldn't do it. He looked erratic and lost when Mizugaki didn't just keel over from his punches.

    Granted, Perez fought his heart out but I just don't see him as the prospect other do.

    This. Sure Perez goes in and swings for the fences (brought back memories of Leonard Garcia, willing to give and take punishment, but not fight smart to prove his worth), but he seemed sloppy and distracted. He comes out a great camp I'm sure but this fight was seemingly too much for him coming off the layoff and adding the hype train.

    Maybe next time I'll see some promise in the guy.

    That was my thought too, but 5 years ago that's what most people would have said about Jon Jones. Now I'm not saying he's the next Jon Jones, but a lot can change in 5 years.

    Erik Goyito Perez, he actually seems legit.
    He does not get the hype someone like Conor McGregor does, but Erik is a really good fighter.
    If he will ever be a champion or not, it is an another discussion, but he is not a nobody. He has good skills.

    This kid is for real people, I'm dead serious keep a close eye on this guy.. You think McGregor is an exciting finisher watch Erik Perez.

    He is 3-0 with 3 first round finishes in the UFC and his next fight vs TAKEYA MIZUGAKI will be a great one. Perez wins by KO and get some real hype he deserves.. I can see him being a legit Title Contender in 2 years. I'm a fan and have been since his UFC debut.

    This kid is excellent.
