    Sad that Burkman went from main event to undercard. I don't know why they thought the Rivera/Riddle fight would be even remotely interesting. All of Rivera's fights on the show were snooze fests.

    The full Hazelett/Burkman fight is here by the way.

    Awesome and courageous armbar. You have to be willing to take risks to submit tough and skilled guys, and Hazelett clearly is willing to open it up for the sake of getting a finish.

    It's the way MMA BJJ should be. It's like speaking a language. Too many fighters want to learn a few important words and then get out there and "communicate".

    In BJJ you shouldn't just put your words to use, you should try to speak them as eloquently as possible..

    I really liked what he said in the post fight interview, "When you get to a certain level in jiu jitsu it is about applying concepts rather then performing specific techniques" (or something very similar to that). Not only does he perform well, he understands it on a level a lot of guys just never will. The techniques are a way to get the concepts and once you grasp those concepts you can start making shit up as you go a long. In that regard it is very much like talking.

    Nice, right off the uchimata. His bjj is very dynamic and he adapts it well for MMA. He's also not hasty. He locks his opponent down when applying a sub, everything is tight.

    i love this post, its the same thing w/striking; people try to employ their concept of it, b4 learning the technique. Once u understand the skills/art then u can freestyle and mix in ur way of doing things because u have the skill/exp and knowledge to back you up in your attempts at personalizing each attack, counter or def.


    dustin is obv at that level as of now, too many guys will see this and try to do this one move; instead of developing an all round ground game.

    Hazelett has been triangling black belts since he was a blue belt. He's truly talented. I'll bet Jorge Gurgel gives him his black belt this year.

    If Hazlett learns to throw hands better he will be a force in the MW division.

    He trains under Gurgel right? I believe I saw Franklin in his corner for the fight

    That's so slick. He pulled off another really nice armbar against Jonathan Goulet last year. You've got to be mc'lovin it.

    i thought it was a uchi mata to armbar lockflow, but in the interview with rogan, he mentioned he just thought of stuff as concepts and not just cut and dried techniques,

    meaning, on the way down, he noticed he had the arm with his overhook, and just threw his leg over burkman's head: that's some high level shit:
