Jules damn near put HIMSELF in that armbar and TBH that was way overkill setting it up like that on Vinnys part. He couldve easily finished him with a textbook armbar, instead of what looked like a failed gogo. Eliot Marshall takes that fight with him no matter where it goes. His Jiujitsu looks much better (yes you can tell quite a bit by about 10 seconds of grappling, and that arm was fed to Vinny) and his standup is way ahead even if it ISNT the best. Only person who I see eeking out a decision over Eliot would be Bader and I think that'll be tough to do
I agree. Vinny may have sick BJJ, but he will never take it to the ground without more agressive MMA. Jules looked horrible. Nervous or not, he threw like 3 jabs, and kept his distance the whole time. WTF?

Vinny will fail until he comes to terms with the fact you may eat a shot or two in this sport.
