Is Joe Duarte “The Next Anderson Silva”?

From Yahoo! Sports:

[Dana White] said he’s found “the next Anderson Silva,” a lightweight who is competing in Season 8 of TUF at 155 pounds, though he declined to release the fighter’s name because it might spoil the season. “I was going off when I saw this guy,” White said. “He’s 24 and he’s destroying people. It’s sick how bad ass he is. I’m getting goose bumps talking to you about him.”

Early message-board speculation is pointing to Joe “Hybrid” Duarte, a 24-year-old San Diego-based fighter who claims on his website that he’s been selected for Team Nogueira vs. Team Mir. Duarte is 3-0 in pro MMA, 9-0 in pro boxing, and 19-1 in Muay Thai. According to his bio page, he walks around at 185lb-190lb (remember, he’s a lightweight) and is “really, really, really RIDICULOUSLY strong,” thanks to his Chamorro ethnic background. And yes, he does destroy people. His last two MMA matches are after the jump:

(Duarte vs. Randy Bowers, 8/24/2007)

(Duarte vs. Ulfrano Rodriguez, 3/22/2008; reffed by the incomparable Cecil Peoples)

perhaps you mean unwashed fitness "playa" since you and joey both stink! I will cut you with elbows, bludgeun you with kness, and decapitate you with my shins should we ever cross paths

i have trained with joe duarte at unleashed fitness in san diego. right near sdsu. all i can say is that he has had no boxing fights and no muay thai fights, hes been out of the army for 3 years. 1 year ago when i met him he had 1 mma fight. he also lies and told me he was the k1 champ. google his name you wont find him anywhere in k1. a little research does no harm. having said that he has earned the right to be on TUF, we will se where he goes from there

good luck joe

It is evident that i will kick that mohawk off your head and all the way back to guan Joe. No one is Anderson Silva! Not even Anderson Silva! ; )

Hey guys,

Joe Duarte is one hell of a fighter and a really cool guy. Joe has inspired me to work harder and trust you will see a new and improved Jason Guida in the future. I have all the tools but just didnt work as hard as I could have. With a newfound work ethic I will be able to take my natural gifts and become a great fighter.

I thank Joe for this motivation.

Say what you want about any of us but Joe Duarte is a really cool guy and if you met him you would definitely agree.

Hey Joe...it's okay man. you've paved the way for a lot of the fighters out here on Guam. I just hope they bring you back for the finale and you can show the world what a Chamoru Boy from Guam can do. Good Luck in the future and thanks for giving us hope here on Guam and the Marianas Islands.

Damn Joe, i got exited to see one of my former coashes at the ultimate figther too bad that your game wasn't there, better luck next time bro.
Mikey P- September 17, 2008 at 12:56 am
Wow all the IBA (Internet Bad Ass) champs are out hating on somebody they have never even met! The hybrid will make things happen, watch and see. He works harder at his profession than any fools here on their keyboard do! If you don't believe me, go have a training session with him and see for yourself!
No-No- September 16, 2008 at 6:41 pm
I've known Joe for about a year, and the man is a dedicated husband, veteran, fighter, and friend. Anyone who thinks they know the real story and talks shit, is as much of an idiot as they appear to be.

Go kick some more ass, Joe!!!!!!
SHok- September 13, 2008 at 11:50 pm
hey Joe, i'm rooting for you. (Just heard about you from Dana during the TUF alumni part)
Anyway, MMA is so popular right now, it brings out so many people that have no idea about the sport. They think its like wrestling or something. So dont mind them too much.

People: Dana is hyping Joe because he sees something very special in him.
Hi is not saying he can beat A.Silva or BJ Penn now, he saying he's going to be great.

Perfect is example is Forrest Griffin. Look where he's at today.
Once Hybrid gets higher level competion, then we'll see but looks good so far!

Peace

I know Joe Duarte personally. He is not a fake, and Guam loves him. He went to San Diego after he did two tours and lost one of his best friends in Iraq. Show some fucking respect. Looks like all of you are just jealous little bitches. What do you REALLY know about Joe Duarte?


Nothing. Exactly...

Haters!!
TboneSteakz- August 25, 2008 at 4:59 am
I was @ this fight. The whole card is the worst matched bout card I've ever seen. No doubt Joe has skillz but he shouldn't be to happy about this one. I'm telling you 90% of the card was WHACK!
Latintuiff- August 2, 2008 at 12:21 am
It's amazing
CK- July 30, 2008 at 1:40 am
I knew Joe before UNLEASHED when he trained at SDFightClub. He was always cool, ready to help anyone. Ego? He didn't show any big ego, no more than you need to be a fighter. He was a good teacher and knew what he was talking about. I don't understand how any of you can say anything without knowing Joe. That's plain stupidity.

Joe D. is a class guy with great skills. I am always amazed by the amount of jealous haters who are so frustrated and angry that they will never amount to anything. Dont hate on Joe because you can't be him. It's OK to be you (Except little, err.. big chris)
