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.
