Exclamation Hate Filho?

Regardless of having any solid proof, I truly believe he had a dependency to steroids. When he pulled from the first attempt of a rematch with Sonnen, he was reported as having depression. I've read that depression is a common side-effect of coming off of a steroid dependency. Plus he always looked A LOT bigger in Japan.


Not only that, but he came in severely overweight in his rematch with Sonnen once it finally happened.


Then he puts on the worst performance next to Kalib Starnes vs Nate Quarry. So he decides he's going back up to 205.


Then once he gets to Japan, he has no problem getting to 185...Hmmm...


Also, I just think he was SEVERELY overrated when he was ranked. Sites like MMAWeekly were always putting Filho and Lindland at the top and it made no sense at all. Who has Filho beaten to justify such a ranking?


END RANT.

Or pretty much all of Big Nog's fights.

Franklin v Hendo, Franklin was winning then the judges turned it into a loss :{

Marcus Davis vs. Paul Taylor. Davis was dropped by a head kick, looked out,getting pounded on and came back to win with an armbar. I thought the fight was going to be stopped for sure, Davis was in a ton of trouble.

Pellegrino vs. Assuncao (I think). Pellegrino gets kicked in head, legs totally buckle and he drops, some GnP follows. Again a fight I thought would be stopped and Pellegrino somehow comes back to win with a gigantic hole in his face from the kick driving his tooth through his lip.

That was great. In terms of losing by a substantial margin to come back and win in dramatic that takes the cake. Gomi vs. Nick Diaz is a close second.

Fedor/Fujita and Nog/Silvia are up there too.
