Kill the flat on the back defensive butterfly guard.
35 is not old. He’s in amazing shape. He didn’t lose because his body is breaking down. He lost the way he did because of that strange strategy. The whole world was confused.
He should stay at 145, and fight a couple of mid level guys to get his confidence back and I truly believe, with the correct/proper training camps, he can still beat some of the best at 145.
And of course I would recommend an offensive clinching guard when on his back. Not one arm bar, Oma plata, Gogo plata, or triangle attempt by BJ. Vitor went after Jones off his back, Pettis went after Benson, Anderson went after Chael, even Tito went after Machida off his back, there’s no reason BJ can’t attack off his back.
Just my opinion, I’ve never done MMA so what do I know, I could be way off. These are just my thoughts, thank you for taking the time to read this
Listen to the very end, he rips off Red Foxx’s joke about how God fucked up by putting a snack bar right next to a shit house, in reference to vaginas and assholes
Thank God the whole galactic alignment thing actually happens every year, and not every 26,000 years like we thought. I really believed that shit. If Neil Degrasse Tyson says it happens every year then it must be true, hopefully.
But I hope this dude isn’t like that annoying Egyptologist that tries to debunk all of John Anthony West’s theories. Neil Degrasse Tyson is obviously WAY smarter than me but he does have a little cockiness about him that makes me a tiny bit suspicious, especially since he worked for George W Bush.
In 2001, President George W. Bush appointed Tyson to serve on the Commission on the Future of the United States Aerospace Industry and in 2004 to serve on the President’s Commission on Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy, the latter better known as the “Moon, Mars, and Beyond” commission. Soon afterward he was awarded the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest civilian honor bestowed by NASA.
If cristiano fought Justin again in one month should he stand with him again and look for an opening to shoot like he did last night?
Or should he shoot deep and pull guard like Paul Sass does?
In my opinion, I think if they fought 10 times in the next 2 years, he still wouldn’t be able to stand with Justin and he still wouldn’t be able to take him down, IMO cristiano’s only hope is the Paul Sass solution, pull guard and attack from the bottom. Same thing goes if he fought Bendo, Maynard, Edgar, pettis, jim miller, Dunham. He would have to Sass all of them.
Cristiano isn’t the only fighter that has to seriously consider the Sass solution. Unless they have amazing striking, most Brazilian bjj’ers, are gonna have the to consider the Sass solution, there’s just too many damn wrestlers flooding into the UFC
10th Planet black belt, Scott “Einstien” Epstein, will start his work as the lead villian in Sony Pictures “Never Back Down 2″ tomorrow, September 27. I have been consulting with producer/director/star Michael Jai White (Spawn/Tyson/Black Dynamite) for the past 2 months on the script and will play the role of the ring announcer/DJ of the underground/illegal MMA event that the movie is based around. The “Compella and the Twister” song “I Did It For Jiu Jitsu” featuring Rakaa from the world renown hip hop group Dialated Peoples will be on the soundtrack and is currently slated as the theme song. Rakaa is a purple belt in Gracie jiu jitsu and is currently training under Ryron and Rener. I will fly to Baton Rouge next Monday for additional consulting and will begin filming my part at the end of October. All you Nibiru warriors out there are gonna trip on the rubber guard and twister that’s gonna make it’s way into the movie, crazy surreal shit to say the least.
I’ve always heard about John through my students Jason “Planet” Eisner and Eric Ramey who both trained at Renzo’s a couple years back, but I never even knew what he looked like until this season’s TUF. He has a reputation of being super crazy cool and is mainly known as a jiu jitsu genius, and guess what? I was not disappointed one bit. Joe Rogan and I hung out with him at Denny’s in Indy late last night hearing awesome stories about his jiu jitsu adventures. Hopefully I’ll get to pick his brain on the mat sometime soon and add some more legit nogi techniques to the 10th Planet system.
