Yea, he could be a lot better at WW. But I don't think size was much of a factor in any of his fights. Maybe his chin will hold up better at this weight. Who knows. Will be interesting.

I don't agree that he is 10x the fighter Hardy is. Maybe a little better, but not a great deal better in my opinion.
He is much, much, much better then Hardy is on his best day. Hopefully they can matchup so you can see they aren't in the same league.

Jorge probably wins that. I hope they give it to him. Dan Hardy is about the only level of guys he can beat.

They are feeding him to a rising star here.

Take some time to think about it. You are NOT going to like the sig I have planned for you

No way in hell Nelson loses this. Far too talented. He'll be facing and beating top 10 fighters by the end of 2013.

I like this Gunnar prospect. Haven't had too many good young prospects with such a stone cold personality/attitude about fighting. At 24 he has a BB under Renzo Gracie, you can tell he is a hard worker. This kid is going to be good.

Last guy was maybe Cain who had that all around game and kind of stone cold personality. Have to go back to the Pride days to find it again.

What are the odds of Nelson initiating the grappling and then Santiago getting the sub?

We all know about Nelson's ADCC exploits but i always assumed Santiago was a high level black belt? (presumably from web reports, forums etc)

Nice Wuk Ariel
