– killer leg kicks

very active striker
– extremely accurate striker
– hard hitter – one of the leaders in knockdowns landed for his size
relentlessly looks for submissions
– extremely dangerous off of his back
very experienced
exceptional at passing guard on the ground



– doesn’t fight very smart
– gets into “street fights” in the cage
– not much knockout power despite striking prowess & knockdowns landed
– seems more interested in putting on exciting fights than winning
– takes way too much damage via strikes – more than he dishes out
– mediocre striking defense
– gets hurt with body shots
– doesn’t look to strike much on the ground or in the clinch
– never has won “the big fight” – seems to wilt in pressure situations
– been busted for PED use (diuretic)
– getting up there in years & miles on his body
– best years definitely behind him
– in a big slump



While the Cowboy is always a crowd-pleaser, his style isn’t always conducive to winning at the highest level.
