Awful news--he was a shoe in as in the winner of next season's TUF. It seems like next season is going to have some serious talent. Here's to hoping he can get himself fixed up, and take the UFC by storm, much in the way Demian Maia is doing now.

The link didn't work for me...but Santino Defranco from TUF9 is living proof that you can (at least in some cases) have the aneurysm operated on and "fixed" well enough to fight. Let's hope that's the case here.

Such a shame. I enjoy watching high level BJJ in MMA matches. I wish more would cross over and put the effort into cross training.
