Sorry if this has already been posted but im still curious as to who this guy is supposed to be. Dana made a comment before this season aired saying he found the 155 lb version of Anderson Silva on this years TUF.

So who is this guy supposed to be? A lot of people thought it was gonna be Joe Duarte but he's no longer on the show and already signed with a smaller company.

We've seen every light weight fight at least once so far. Who is this guy supposed to be? Any guesses?

well there aren't too many LWs that fit the bill and Phillipe is the logical choice of the remaining candidates. i would say 90% it is him.

yeah I guess it would make the most sense, he is 24 too so he matches the bill.

I'm still holding onto the slim possibility that Dana White actually exaggerated the abilities of one of the TUF contesttants.

Regardles of who he was talking about, this is indeed the case. However, I believe he was talking about Phillipe. He wasn't overly impressive in his first fight, but won in convincing fashion nonetheless. From what I've seen of his training, he's got great looking strikes and works his ass off. Hopefully we'll see soon.

Yup, and in the first fight he fought Joe Duarte who everyone thought was the person Dana was talking about, but Phillipe destroyed Joe.

Didn't Dana say that this person was the Anderson Silva of BJJ? Maybe I heard wrong, but out of all of the 155ers Phillipe seems the most well rounded.

He said this guy is like the Anderson Silva of the 155lb division. I hope Phillipe fights Junie.
