Can Mike Russow make a deep run in the UFC Heavyweight division?

Since Brock Lesnar weathered the striking storm of Carwin, people have been on his jock for such a great comeback.

Why no love for Mike Russow?  He got pwn'd for all fight, until he laid Todd Duffee out stiff with a single right hand.

For the record, Mike Russow is 13 - 1, 2-0 in the UFC.  His only loss was to Sergei Kharitonov, who himself KO'd everyones favorite HW Alistair Overeem in a K-1 bout. 

Who will be his next opponnent?

Does he need a win to continue in the UFC?

Can Mike Russow make a deep run in the UFC Heavyweight division? 

I am making the case that he can, as long as he wins one more fight.  If he loses, Dana could quietly release him, but with 1 more win, I think Russow would prove that he can compete as a UFC HW.

While he hasn't fought a who's who of MMA greats, he has managed to KO or Submit opponents in 11 of his 13 wins.  His heavy right hand is complemented by a versitile submission game.  He has finished fights via the following:  Guillotine, North-south Choke, Triangle, Kimura, Rear Naked Chock and Keylock (Whatever that is).  Added to this, he has a chin that can take a beating, so tell me what he needs to do to stay in the UFC.
