link Not too long ago, Brazilian grappler Paulo Filho was considered to be one of the top three middleweights in MMA. However, he has since lost his luster as the result of a slew of shakey in-ring performances over the past few years, as well as a handful of incidents involving both questionable personal and professional behavior.

I am quite surprised he'd lose to a virtual non name, you really have to wonder what is going on in Paulo Filho's mind.

ever since he started seeing ghosts in the ring it's been all down hill...I think that was the Sonnen fight in WEC maybe?

Maybe Marcos Rogerio de Lima is the next big thing? If this guy turns out to be a future star then this loss isn't so bad for Filho. Just remember at one point every superstar was a "nobody".

He is the real thing. He'll be in the UFC within a year.

Some good points. Watch some old fedor fights, and you basically get "How is Fedor going to beat Heath Herring?" type comments.
