What a night of fights. Lots of finishes, but what a war in the final fight...reminded me of Griffin/Bonnar I without the blood. This should be a great season of TUF. Sucks we gotta read all the conversations, but as long as the fights dont disappoint, I can live with it.

Yeah, Babalu was a Brazilian national wrestling champion. He was wrestling for quite a while before he began training BJJ. I can't even think of another Brazilian who was a well established nationally recognized wrestler before progressing in the jitz off the top of my head. Brazilians almost exclusively begin with BJJ.

In an interview years ago he said he equates his being a Brazilian National Wrestling Champion with an American being a professional soccer champion. I thought it was funny that he's humorous about his accomplishments in relation to US wrestling. Still not an easy feat though.

I don't see anybody beating Francisco Drinaldo, he's just too damn big and strong.

hes a LW fighter lol. I initially picked him in jjeans' side game then took someone else cuz he pointed it out. He got armbarred by Alcantara not too long ago, and Alcantara is currently a FW. He does look pretty big though, but he did have like 7 months to bulk up.
