I seen the name Flores before, and while I admit I am not familiar with Flores at all, though I have always seen his name come up every now and again. Would I be right to assume that this is more of a solid test for Green? Can someone give me some info on him.
I think I remember BG (v.20 version, not biggeorge) having him on his roster as a heavyweight a few years back.
A solid test relative to RJJ? Yes.
I know he has been wanting to get into the UFC.
I don't think he has the power to keep Green at bay. BJ Flores does have considerable experience considering his extensive and successful amateur career. He really hasn't faced much tough comp. since turning pro and considering the level of comp. has not shown 1st tier power.
But who knows? Maybe they have been bringing him along slow just waiting for the right opportunity.
I believe his slow development may have something to do with the fact he is a Mormon (missions etc.).
I will definitely be interested in catching this fight if possible.
