Most people who like MMA are interested in BJJ, he writes with no evidence whatsoever to back up that claim.


The Eddie Bravo Invitational is what happens when Joe Rogan and Eddie Bravo get really high and run with an idea.  It’s pretty cool and will take place on Sunday on UFC’s Fight Pass and I suggest checking it out.  They’re even adding in another round of Combat Jiu-Jitsu, a form of grappling where you open hand slap someone.  Think of it as the JV version of MMA.


I know you don’t know anything about the dudes competing – most of them barely know each other, I suspect (I also have no evidence for this claim).  This video will help you learn more.


For those who want the easiest route in life: Garry Tonon might not know how to spell the fucking name of GARY but he sure can grapple.  He wins basically everything at the EBI events and so if you like front runners, he’s your dude.  Cheer for him and you’ll probably feel as if you didn’t waste your time in this short life of ours.
