Since that 2003 loss he's gone 5-0 winning every fight by first round submission. Here's a highlight of some of his wins:

Will be interesting to see how he does in the Octagon. Let him fight another UFC virgin in his first match, then run him through the TUF ringers that are crowding the 185 class.
