Team Nogueira fighter, black belt Judoka, black belt Jiu Jitsu, very confident and very powerful striking, great fight instincts and always looking to finish opponent. Kid is trouble.
Typical Brazilian fighter you think, some are more successful than others but WW is wrestler heavy. This kid trains with the American wrestler in mind and it shows in his fights, Erick Silva is going to be a big problem for everyone in the division. He's like a young Shogun or Anderson that has put more emphasis on wrestling defense, he can do what Aldo and Silva do and IMO his hardest fight right now would be Nick Diaz.
