DREAM 10 Review: Paulo Filho Submits Melvin Manhoef

I read that Filho only attended treatment for 10 days after his last WEC fight against Chael Sonnen.  I, along with many others were unsure of which Paulo would show up against Manhoef.  Filho was able to survive a vaunted attack from the Dutchman and secure a take down while advancing to mount, ending the fight via arm bar.  This fight showed that Filho can weather a storm and still come out on top.  This fight also showed us that Manhoef's submission defense is still suspect as ever, so I don't quite know what to make of it just yet.  I suppose a win is a win for Filho at this point, and it'll be interesting to see what's next for him.  Do you think the old Paulo Filho is back?
