Thanks walker.
HE LOST TO SHIBATA.

Watch your double posting. If you need to quote two people just use the multi-quote.

Why are we not talking about Galvao and how he is going to win the entire tournament?

He got choked out by David Baron and looked unimpressive against guys he should have dominated.

Nobody cares about him yet because most people don't watch/follow BJJ.

Well, he just dominated a pretty decent name in is third MMA fight ever. I can definitely see him becoming a top 3 WW pretty quickly.

Oh so can I, I just mean that no-one is going to care about him for a while except for people who know him from his grappling. It took people a while to get into Jacare.

Anyone can get caught from time to time he still wins the vast majority of his fights and you thinking he isn't doing it impressively is pretty irrelevant since he is winning and you can't be on a downslide beating almost everyone you fight. It isn't like Baron is awful either.

You can't lose to one of the biggest cans in MMA and not be one yourself. There was a time where he could actually be considered half decent but that time has passed.

He's 33 and has taken sever beatings during his career. Overall, he's not a can. At the moment, yes, but not in terms of his overall career.

I gotta disagree, Mach went from being a top contender to looking pretty bad after the Gomi loss. This is the first time he has looked impressive since.

I just watched the fight and that's the first one I've got to see of him- pretty impressive. Alessio has a ton of experience so that was a very good win for Galvao. I didn't feel like watching any of the other fights earlier this morning after I saw the Aoki-Sakurai fight.
