Bravo does not get the credit for what he has done to help transition no gi jiu-jitsu to mma, he has also been credited to inventing alot of sweet sweeps, passes, etc, that nobody tends to acknowledge all that much. In addition to this he beat ROYLER Gracie in a Jiu-jitsu tourny, i'm pretty sure this was Roylers first or only loss in competition, although I may be wrong.

I pretty much trust his scoring more than the judges, i've seen them with alot stranger figures on the cards that what Bravo has ever come out with.

Bravo sounded incredibly unprofessional. He is a stoner, don't take this as me trying to defame his character I think it is common knowledge, so it comes as no surprise that his voice and vocabulary reflects his habits. "dude... man... like... yeah... totally." Not only what he said but how he said it was totally out of place for a professional sport. It sounded horrible to say the least.

Bravo might have accomplished a lot in other areas but this is not his forte, he has no place in a commentating role.
