MMA Sun 2015 Prospect Spotlight – The Lightweights – #10 – David Putvin

Kicking off our top ten lightweights is David “Playtime” Putvin. Putvin is a 22-year old fighter who trains out of Jeremy Horn’s gym. PutvinDavid-Putvin-hs already has a few nice wins on his resume and is still early in his career. I do not believe it will take many more to gain the attention of the bigger leagues.

Putvin is a rangy striker, who seems to have good length for the lightweight division. He has long arms that he uses well to keep distance. At first, I did not think he really had power in his hands, but he has been able to knock opponents down. Sometimes his punches can be a bit wild. If he would straighten them out a little bit, he would probably have more success. He really can pour on the aggression too. I would like to see him diversify a little bit by adding knees and stronger kicks to his arsenal. He has a good chin and there have been times it has been tested. Like so many of our prospects, I would like to see him get his less often. However, he seems to roll with punches well in order to avoid serious damage.

He is a very good grappler. I like his balance and takedown defense. Also, he seems to have an eye for choking people. He hunts necks. All seven of his victories have come by way of choke, including one by flying triangle choke.  If an opponent makes a mistake he will capitalize. He has choking power and the ability to choke a guy to sleep. Offensively, he does have some good takedowns as well.  He is able to get those in a variety of ways.  Putvin was a pretty good high school wrestler and has even done a good bit of Greco-Roman competition, which certainly could benefit him in the clinch.  There were a few times in his hunt for chokes that he did not secure positioning as well as he could or should.

Putvin has some areas to improve, but I am really impressed with his finishing ability.  I also think his age is in his favor.  He has the physical tools and background to do very well in MMA.   He somewhat reminds me of Michael Chiesa, but I think he has a little bit better striking potential than Chiesa.

  12. GOD’S COMPLETE REVELATION! BY STEVE FINNELL

    We have God’s complete revelation to all mankind, it is called the Bible. There are sixty six books. There are no more books. God’s direct revelation to mankind was finished, completed with the death of the last apostle. The church of Christ had all the information it needed to preach the gospel, teach the church about faith in Jesus Christ, and to instruct men to obey God’s commands.

    Jude 1:3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.

    Jude wrote in his letter, in about 65 A.D., that Christians already had a common salvation. He said contend for the faith which had been handed down once for all. The faith was not being added to nor were parts of the faith being deleted by new revelation. Jude knew nothing of so-called new revelations being written in books of catechisms nor were there any other extra-Biblical books of so-called new revelations from God.

    There is no 21st century new revelation, new prophecy, nor new knowledge. We already have the completed Scriptures, the BIBLE.

    1 Corinthians 13:8 Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away.

    Direct prophecy and special knowledge from God have ceased. There is no more prophecy or knowledge that is equal to Scripture. The Bible was completed long ago.

    1 Corinthians 13:10 But when what is complete comes , then what is incomplete will no longer be used. (God’s Word Translation (1995).

    We have a completed Bible. We do not need new revelation. We do not need modern-day apostles nor prophets.

    2 Peter 1:3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.

    The apostle Peter said, in about 66 A.D., that Christians already had true knowledge. What kind of knowledge are the modern writers of catechisms, or other of the so-called modern-day apostles, and prophets disseminating? A question that is worth pondering.

    1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.

    The apostle Paul said their word was God’s word. For men today to claim that the catechisms they write, and, or, the so-called new books of revelation, are directly from God; is at best, a case of self-delusion. The worst case scenario is willful deception or purposeful ignorance.

    Acts 20:27 For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God.

    The apostle Paul declared the whole purpose of God to the Ephesians. How could Paul have declared the whole purpose of God in the first century if modern day prophets and apostles are still being given new purposes from God today? There are no new, direct revelations, from God that are equal to Scripture.

    John 16:13 But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative , but whatever He hears, He will speak; and will disclose to you what is to come.

    Jesus said, to the twelve apostles, that the Holy Spirit would guide them into all truth. The apostle heard all the truth. THERE IS NO NEW TRUTH TO BE ADDED! The Bible is completed, it is finished.

    Ephesians 3:3-5 that by revelation there was made know to me the mystery, as I wrote before in brief. 4 By referring to this, when you read you can understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which in other generations was not know to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed to His holy apostles and prophets in the Spirit;

    The mystery of Christ was revealed to the apostle Paul as well as the other apostles and prophets. It is not continually being revealed, it was revealed. We have that revelation, it is in the Bible.

    We have God’s completed word. We have the BIBLE!

    HOW MUCH PRIDE WOULD IT TAKE FOR MEN, TODAY, TO CLAIM THAT THEIR WORDS ARE, IN FACT, EQUAL TO SCRIPTURE?
