    I'm stuck at work and cannot order the web feed. Does anyone know what's happening on the card?

    I think this is not his debut. Almost a year ago he was on a card in las vegas.

    It is his pro debut, he had an amateur fight just about 2 years ago.

    I don't want to bash a fighter but why such a low level guy? seems unneccesary, Drysdale is a great grappler, has access to top notch MMA training, probably trained for quite some time. feel bad for his opponent

    Say what you will about the Japanese approach but i kinda favour that

    Jiu Jitsu =/= MMA. Rob is right to test the waters and get himself experience before calling too much attention.

    The guy was 8-2. Not too bad for a debut, IMO. Dae Won Kim was 10-4 when he fought Marcello.

    Experience. Not just the few minutes he was actually in the cage but entire process starting with the training camp, weight cut, weigh in, rehydrating, media and ticket sales, being in the locker room warming up, the ring entrance, post fight etc etc. He should bang out 5-7 local fights all the while getting comfortable in the cage and letting the other skills he is developing in the gym catch up to his jiu jitsu so that when he finally faces top fighters he is prepared.
