It takes a lot more to become a complete fighter than landing mediocre kicks and swinging for the fences.

Unless Vinny takes his next fight to the ground, I bet he's going to lose. Everyone knows hes afraid to take a hit. The next guy he fights will be more aggressive. Jules was just scared the whole time.

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.

BADER WILL MAKE IT GO TO THE GROUND, CAUSE HE'S KNOWN FOR HIS WRESTING MOST. I DON'T KNOW THAT IT WILL BE A GOOD IDEAL ON HIS PART THOUGH..

lol what the hell is he doing on that show? i know people at my local gym who could have put up a bigger fight than jules.

it's also pretty funny hearing people say Vinny has sick BJJ when he hasn't even used any of it against a real opponent yet.

Which is my point exactly. He has learned a ton about BJJ, and has the skills to be a great fighter, but until he puts it all together, he has not accomplished anything in MMA. He has the skills, he needs the heart and the determination to make it in this sport.

It's like, he knows the moves, he just does not know how to execute them in a fight.

I liked Dana''s commment about him falling asleep until Vinny took it to the ground. Vinny was better off fighting Sparring BOB the Body Opponent Bag.
