Kinda weird that him and Anderson won't fight since I rememebr in the commentary for his fight with Shoji the announcer said that Filho wanted to have a fight with Anderson since he considered him to be one of the best.

Exactly, Filho armbars are quality stuff.

Paulo Filho vs. Akira Shoji
It's funny in this fight, Bas mentions that Filho really wants to fight "Chute Box' Anderson Silva" Not like that nowdays unfortunately.

Paulo Filho vs. Amar Suloev
Paulo Filho vs. Ryuta Sakurai
Paulo Filho vs. Kazuo Misaki Prt 1
Paulo Filho vs. Kazuo Misaki Prt 2
Paulo Filho vs. Ryo Chonan

Destruction, watch those man and see what you think.

If you watch those in a row, you'll really appreciate his level of top control, once he gets someone down he controoools you. Especially that Misaki fight, and Misaki is a Top 10 Middleweight.

These armbars are just brilliant.

EDIT: Mancha, just saw I wrote the same as you in regards to the commentary on Filho/Shoji, good call

Basing an opinion on a fighter after just watching one fight is pretty stupid. Filho is probably the second best MW in the world easily when he isnt being affected by those problems. I really dont even think he looked that bad in that fight, he did still finish him, controversial or not that arm was gonna get snapped IMO.

A gatekeeper in the UFC is just laughable, The only guy that I know who would most likely beat him is Anderson, all the other top contendors may have a chance but I would favor him over most.

Dude the guy was not himself in that fight. Watch some of his other fights. He did pretty much look like shit his last showing, and got lucky against chael. Even as off his game he was he still subbed a good fighter in sonnen.

I think Filho is overrated, not that he's a bum by any stretch but I'm not sure I'd put him in the top 5 in the UFC. I think Silva, Hendo, Marquardt and Franklin are losses for sure, gets a little dicey after that. I'm anxious to see though, hopefully he is UFC bound.
