The Ultimate Fighter 8 Phillipe Nover gets ready to fight Efrain Escudero at the TUF 8 Finale. Picks Bater to win the TUF 8 light heavyweight bout.
I think this guy is gonna be a force in the UFC right away.
I agree I would put him in the top 15-20 at lw right now
i agree, he is definitely in the top 50 LWs right now.
i thought it was going to e Phillip vs Junie but its god to see at lest see phillip make it..
i think phillip will win the fight with evon by knock out or Kamora sub..
Nover is a great fighter. he has all the tools that it takes to become a top fighter at his class. however, after witnessing the fight between him and escudero, i was extremely disappointed in his wrestling defense. He should have focused more on that knowing he was going to be toeing up with a collegiate wrestler. also, he did not seem very dedicated. during the stare down, he didnt even look him in the eyes. I dont want say he was scared, but he did not look very fired up. his punches did not follow through with the convictions he previously showed. Escudero definately went into the fight prepared for nover's strengths and capitalized. props to escudero, but i know this is not the last of nover. he has a great potential to contribute much to this sport and his career. i would definitely like to see a rematch. nurse vs cop..haha that sounds good!
7 − = five
