Don't trust anyone over 30. Revolutionary Max Frost had the right idea....

He had no real set-up, he is a new face and new name (to us), so just like any other stock villain for a story arc (of which this arc is already jam packed full of), he can rise or fall based on how useful he could be later in the story. His fall now could greatly enhance the current story and the future plot (similar to Ace spending a 100 chapters looking for Blackbeard, then spending another 100 chapters waiting for war), or he could survive only to fall later (not all opponents must be defeated before the end, but several monumental events must transpire, and an Admiral falling is just one of many).

Depends on how they fall. If this upcoming battle turns into an even greater free-for-all with Blackbeard showing up (his crewmate is fighting afterall) or even Kaidou coming to breath down Doflamingo's neck, then whose to what could happen.
