I really like Karl Moore as a prospect.  His sole loss came at the hands of Paul Craig, in a fight in which he was close to finishing with a rear naked choke.  Moore has good submissions and  has finished five of his six fights via submission.  It would seem that submissions are his preferred techniques to finish a fight.  However, he has shown solid striking ability.  He is not primarily thought of as a striker, but in his last few fight, I thought he looked good on the feet.  He has also shown that he is dangerous on his feet.  He has power in his punches and can even be dangerous when he is hurt.  The other thing that I noticed was that he can take a punch.  I do not recommend prospects building their resume off of their chin, but Moore can take a punch.  As one of the younger light heavyweight prospects, I expect Moore continue to improve rapidly.  Moore is not far removed from the upper echelon of prospects in this weight class.  I believe that he is a guy that with a few more wins, the UFC or even Bellator could really target.
