I am serious, and intitled to my own opinion, I think he may become a "decent" wrestler but never MMA style world class.

Dana wasn't kidding that he was like Anderson, they have the same weak spots, Wrestling. I believer Nover will bounce back up with improvement.

Wow this is a dumb thread. He is just missing wrestling, whereas Vera is missing heart. You can train the former, not the latter.

aye, even says so on the post. Nover did well, just got outwrestled by another versatile fighter. Bit like Stevenson vs. Cummo fight. We'll see both for sure still ^^

i think the Anderson/GSP comparison is not lost..Anderson's weak point is wrestling and GSP's was outwrestled before by Hughes.. hopefully Nover will be back.. same is through with Vera..

Rooting for..
HW - Brandon Vera
LHW - Lyoto Machida
MW - Martin Kampmann
WW - John Fitch
LW - Clay Guida

I think Nover is already better than Vera. He took good shots, has a black belt, and has pretty solid striking. The only thing that was bothering me about his performance, is that he was over-swinging every punch, not using his stick-and-move at all, and his TDD wasn't very solid.

By next fight, he will be a force. That is something you can just drill over and over!

GSP LEARNED to be that good of a wrestler. I dont remember him being the fantastic wrestler he is now before his first fight with hughes eh? Nover will get it, give him time. LW Champ by 2010 yo
