People don't generally cut for BJJ matches....let alone exhibitions.

Estima also out-pointed Jacare last year, major test for Diaz!

Just watched some footage on him, most was with the gi. Should be interesting, I might go check it out since I'm only 20 minutes from LBC.

Pulling for good ol' Nicky but highly doubtful. He has everything to gain and nothing to lose though.

In truth, none of us know what level BBJ Nick is because we've rarely seen him compete in pure BJJ competition. I cant remember the last time anybody got the better of Nick using BJJ in MMA.

On paper, Braulio should win comfortably... but I don't know. I'll say this much... I'm intrigued.

Penn briefly took his back.

Not exactly outclassing him, but definitely getting the upper hand. That entire roll was pretty insanely high level.


RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
