Man, Filho had a very Nog-like performance, came back from the dead to pull off a sub, I was pulling for Manhoef but that was impressive.

Grizzly- use spoilers in your titles with fights like these- some people don't watch them live and catch them the next day and don't want to the results shown like that. Thanks

I'd already edited your title for this thread.

Glad to see this. Filho has amazing skills and it would be a sad story if he couldnt get right mentally. Ive said for years that Filho would beat Anderson Silva, but its all mental with this guy. IF the Filho that mauled Ninja, and the Filho that showed up for GP comes back he is a dangerous dude. And a perfect matchup for Anderson Silva.

Manhoef is entertaining as hell. And the guy hits so hard! He KO'd Mark Hunt for Christ's sake. If only he had a ground game. Once the fight hit the ground it took Filho around 3 seconds to get side control, mmount and set up an armbar. Obviously Melvin has no problem standing with most middleweights.. I think he needs to take 6 months and just train BJJ and submission wrestling..

It was a great fight though.. Easily could be comeback of the year.

Such a huge discrepancy in skill level from his striking to ground game. It's a pity. Manhoef always entertains. He probably hits just as hard as a LHW or maybe even a HW. Paulo's got a pretty solid chin. Nice come back win of sorts.

Someone mentioned it was reminiscent of Big Nog. He took some hard shots looked like he was going down on several occasions. Oh well Paulo needed it especially from his last fight(s). I'd like to see Paulo vs Thales then Demian.
