If you don't consider fighting a weight division up against the #1 ranked fighter in that division and taking 2 rounds out of 5 then I don't know whats wrong with you. To say that Henderson didn't look good is borderline retarted becuase he looked great, and Nog looked terrible? wow, it amazes me that one headkick (which he recovered from btw) can make so many people watching the fight completley forget the other 14 minutes of the fight which Nog dominated, almost like the headkick hit them too.
and as someone kindly pointed out Anderson Silva wasn't discovered fighting in no-name productions either. He was a cage rage and Pride fighter long before the UFC signed him. Besides Shogun, Cro Cop, and Sokodjou no one from PRIDE has looked worse in the UFC then they did in PRIDE. Herring looked bad against O'brien but that is because of a knee injury, he then went on to look very good against Imes then got unfairly fed to Nog. Gono looked good imo, and Aurelio, Wandy, Werdum, Nakamura, and Chonan looked EXACTLY the same as they did in PRIDE, they were just fighting better fighters.
