Is Garcia going to be fighting any time soon? I thought he did pretty good in his MMA debut. Sure, he lost, but it was his first time fighting in MMA. With some more experience, the guy will be dangerous. Isn't he training with ATT? That has got to help him out.

Yea he's at ATT. He's such a good grappler it's crazy supposedly he is just destroying everyone he trains with at ATT including the bigger Blackbelts.

It's all going into my next Next Gen post but Eddie Bravo calls the guy Jesus and says once he adapts to the gloves that he will be the best grappler in MMA.

We'd never hear the end of people saying how "they ran off to fight cans in japan"

I'd hate for people to say that about guys like Hendo, Shogun and Wanderlei.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Well Shogun's kinda f*cked since he's deadset on fighting Liddell and no one else. Which while I like Shogun and will pick him is the worst match up outside of Lyoto Machida for him.

I think he can and probably would beat anyone else in the LHW divison with a solid gas tank and a knee that doesn't need surgery. Besides Lyoto and Liddell.

Thats great news as Diaz is an exciting fighter so it should be fun.

Diaz vs Aoki would rule!!!

I wouldnt mind seeing some of the Pride guys going back to Japan either. Although I am pretty happy with the current UFC roster.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Was that the guy who was on the show Tapout? I remember seeing a Bravo student on the show, and Eddie seemed to have a total mancrush on the guy.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I just prefer the atmosphere to Japanese events, they feel more epic.

Nah Garcia wasn't on Tapout. He's not even a Bravo student I'm not even sure if he uses rubber guard.

But supposedly the guy is so good it scares everyone including Eddie.

Oh, I know who Marcelo Garcia is, I thought you were talking about some guy from Eddie Bravo's school.
