Garcia came into the UFC with a lot of hype from those who’d seen the 26-year old compete in Canada and lived up to the praise with a sub-minute knockout of the previously unbeaten Wall. With finishes in all but one of his wins and an equal number of TKOs/submissions, it seems Garcia has the potential to be a part of the UFC for years to come. He’s clearly not ready for a ranked opponent, but an adversary along the lines of Stephen Thompson or Sean Spencer would be perfectly suited for his next pairing.
