This would be a good fight.

Regardless of what color his belt is, he has it under Nog which means he's no slouch.

Don't know if this interview is legit, but I don't have any reason to doubt it. The interview implies that he has been practicing BJJ for 7 years. Considering who he trains with, he could very well be capable of avoiding top level submission fighters, enough to use his kickboxing background to knock them out like he did Werdum. I am looking forward to his next fight. He wasn't even touched, so hopefully it will be soon.

He stated to the UFC that he started training BJJ in 2005.

Antoni Hardonk should be his next opponent. Hardonk doesn't have any schedualed opponents now so its a perfect fit. A win by either will propel them up the HW ladder.


They are also very good strikers who are BJJ Purple Belts. It would be a great fight.

Wawaweewa, this is EXACTLY what happened when Houston Alexander came onto the scene. He had a quick KO, everyone was impressed and started talking about him. I'm not jumping on the Santos bandwagon until he has 3 wins against legitimate fighters. Anyone can get lucky.

big difference in the KO.

this wasn't a quick flash KO. He was outstiking him all day long from a technical standpoint as well.

he hardly got lucky!! like Rogan said in commentary he saw that Werdum was dipping his head and simply went for the upper cut. no luck involved in that....

IMO the UFC is not a place to learn your trade and gain fight experience, there's smaller orgsfor that. If you're fighting in the UFC you should be thrown on at the deep end.

One of the things that attracted me to MMA over boxing was the fact that contenders fought each other rather than just padding their records.
Exactly.
