How was that a horrible showing?

Very good striking, very good submissions, just a lack of wrestling.

And this is coming from a guy who bet against him.

Huh, i was rooting for Nover..

It turned out to be a really bad matchup for him, he could not throw anything, efrain would shoot and take him down.

I think that if Nover had a better wrestling base he would of took this. He did not receive much punishment though. Props to escudero for doing the right thing..

Philippe will be back..

Thats a pretty racist thread

Phillepe is an awsome fighter, Efrien is just better
I thought Efrian would win the fight from day 1

and Brandon vera is very talented

do you have any idea how huge mma is in the phillipeans, its HUGE, I saw some video were they had chuck show up to some mall and like 100000 people showed up to see him, and mma is on tv all day every day there

I was rooting for Nover and fomr the sound of it (havent seen the fight) the majority of what Efrian did was hold him down. I heard Nover was firing subs and stuff still and still trying to win. He'll be back. He has some great stand up and BJJ. I hope to see him again soon

He won round 3 off his back, but the wrestling was his downfall.

Efrain was just better prepared I think nover just figured he had this and did not prepare for him. By the third round he was throwing the jab and I think he could of set up the KO

Were they saying nover has been with the same camp since he was 9 loyalty is cool but a guy needs to diversify get out and get some more tools and I think he will be impressive.

I didnt care about this fight until I saw efrain come out in that stupid poncho and then I just wanted to see him get KO. Why did Nover have to let me down now he should have to wear that stupid thing around as his punishment.

Our toughest nurse could have done much better tonight IMO. Why did he have to lose 2 rounds to finally wake up in the 3rd?

Efrain looked pretty good last night, I hate to say it but Nover is no super star and never will be. HE got tossed aroung around like a sack of taters, and no amoount of training will be enough to bring his wrestling level to where it needs to be, this will always be a downfall for him.
