Is.... By investigative research:

Joe "Hybrid" Duarte. He fights out of San Diego. Kid's 24, has listed on his website that he'll be featured on the show and seems to have the credentials..

19-1 in Muay Thai.. 9-0 in Professional Boxing and constantly improving in Jits.. Lists Anderson Silva as one of his sports heroes...

Hmmm..

The video posted in the post above me should give you a small glimpse at how good Duarte is.. My question though: how the hell do you gain 23 pounds in 24 hours???

Here he is training. I'm sure my boy Vince must know him. He went out to San Diego last year to train. Vince is from Dededo.

You guys are dead wrong. Dana was talking about Mark Hughes.

 Yeah, walking into the ring at 178. He must be one of the bigger lightweights around.

The announcer in the first vid was probably the biggest dipshit this side of Goldberg.

"That was the weakest knee I've ever seen in my life"
and
"You never turn your back on the ground"

Seriously, arent there smart people that know something about mma that can do the pbp for these smaller shows?

Eh, one fight isn't enough to say either way. He doesn't seem very Anderson-like with his attitude, but most fighters aren't.

He's obviously good, but "the next Anderson Silva" is sort of a tall order. Anderson has probably less credentials in sports outside of MMA than this kid, but even then you're talking about freaking ANDERSON SILVA.

I agree.......he must have really tore through the competition on TUF to get the comparison

 Anyone know if this "Next Anderson Silva" is explosive or athletic?

So he is fighting amateur, cutting that much weigh, and fighting total cans? He looks skilled but I don't think you can say much based on the video of him fighting a guy who has no business in the ring.
