    Now that we've seen all the guys fight, whom do you think Dana trumpets as the next Anderson Silva?

    Most people thought Duarte was the man concerned, but Felipe Nover (sp?)handled him. He's got great stand-up and ground, and he's only going to get better.

    I think it's Felipe Nover. Perhaps he ends up on Nog's team and gets some coaching time with Silva and Anderson puts in the good word too?

    You mean Junie? I reckon Mir was trolling Nog, talking Junie up bigtime to see if he could make Nog pick him first. Junie was constantly jumping into subs hehe

    What?? It's obviously that Shane Nelson guy, the one where Nog went, "Nelson, dat keeds a goood fighta". They didnt show the whole fight but he looked just like Anderson, at least style-wise. He was throwing punches, kicks, knees all one after the other and overwhelmed the guy he was fighting with strikes.

    I can't remember any but the full fights, I kind of switched off for the highlights.

    Sure Nelson's been fighting hard-headed Hawaiians but he hasn't knocked anyone out and has gone to lots of decisions, though one win by tapout to strikes on a guy making his debut. I'll have to rewatch that episode and see if he's that great.

    It'd make sense for them to keep the new Anderson on the down low for now though.

    From the hype I was kind of expecting a spectacular KO in the first fights though :-/

    He overwhelmed him with a variety of strikes then landed some repeated knees to the face, I think he finished him with that but i forget.
