Roger Gracie's Return

I have a feeling Kondo will outwork Gracie with his experience early in the fight, but sooner or later, he'll get caught with a submission.

I think Gracie will own him early and often. I think this is an easy first round submission for Roger.

He's just to good a grappler for almost anyone.

I agree with that, but Gracie showed a BJJ stereotype in his first fight, and that was not liking getting punched. I have a feeling he'll be pretty uncomfortable in the first bit of the fight, but will then kick in to put Kondo to sleep.

I think Kondo's going to TKO Gracie.

Kondo's gotten worse, sure, but he's way more experienced and he actually has solid sub defense. He also has better stand-up.

I also see Kondo taknig this one. Is Gracie even training MMA right now?

Plazz Waterman isn't a scrub by any means and Gracie adapted pretty easily on the ground during the fight. I mean he started out getting hit and then he started defending himself from punches very well.

plazzman 05-06-2008 12:09 AM

I know, I never said he's a scrub. He's actually extremely strong and has a ton of experience.

O I know you know about Waterman my point is the guy was facing a roided out 280 pounder who has very good wrestling. It wasn't like he had any options in that fight but subbing Ron off his back.

plazzman 05-06-2008 12:15 AM

Oh ok. Yeah, he did great in the grappling part, and after he was able to overcome his fear of getting hit, he pretty much turned it on and finished Ron in fine fashion.

I love my BJJ prospects, so I would really like to see Roger pull out the win.
