    All the best for GM3. He seems like a nice guy and well spoken. He fights Bartosz Fabinski this weekend at UFC Vegas 24, April 17th.

    Getting 1 punch KO'd by a guy from a weight class under you has gotta fuck with you mentally. I wish him the best.

    Meerschaert is a solid fighter. He got robbed against Holland and Anders. I think he gets the dub with a sub against Fabinski this weekend.

    Gerald can sell a fight any day, he is really good at that but his fighting style sucks

    Not impossible I suppose. I got a decent underdog pick against Fabinski when he fought Andre Muniz. Most people expected Bartosz to use his Judo to keep it standing and outstrike Andre, but instead he got armbarred in the first round. Muniz is a solid BJJ guy from the Brazilian regional scene, but he lacks Gerald's experience and wrestling (as mediocre as it is compared to a few other Middleweights).

    That being said, whenever GM3 is fighting I always worry about his ability to be competitive in the standup and manage the positional aspects of his grappling game. His pace, cardio, and ability to snatch up subs aren't really in question.

    Guy’s a fun do-or-die fighter so I’m rooting for him. He’s got like 20 submission wins or something in that vein.

    If it wasn't for that lucky punch Meerschaert would have murdered Khamzat.

    He's actually tied for most submission wins in MW history, with 6.
