He has been impressive, but nothing he has done can come close to showing that he would do that...
The hype partially deserved (IMO he has shown great potential since his first UFC fight and I think he will be champ after silva leaves), but allot of the hype is because he is another wrestler/grappler that people think can hold silva down and beat him. This will happen to every wrestler in the MW division untill silva is beaten or retires; allot of people really just want him gone.
