1. Brunson got completely and utterly hosed in his fight against Kendall Grove, which I had him winning the first 2 rounds quite convincingly. I heard today that now his ShoFight paycheck didn't clear/bounced....
2. Jacare deserves much, MUCH higher competition. Brunson's a very good prospect and athletic wrestler, but Jacare's JJ is THE best at MW and it feels as though he's just being under-emphasized in these fights rather than highlighted. I'd love to see him in the UFC, but chances are he faces winner of Kennedy/Rockhold, which would be cool.....but still. Jacare's a beast and I hate to see his prime be spent fighting in bouts that don't really matter.
