Prior to his stint in the WEC he had a seven-fight winning streak in PRIDE, and probably would have won their 2006 welterweight grand prix; he injured himself in his semifinal win over Misaki though so he couldn't fight in the final (Misaki replaced him and ended up beating Denis Kang for the win). For a while people were talking about him as the #2 ranked 185'er in the world after Anderson Silva. But yeah, the dude has some drug problems, apparently he was addicted to roofies (!) during the WEC run and says he's still not entirely cured, so I'm not sure if I'm all aboard the Filho bandwagon just yet.
