    Yes...you are correct.

    Styles make fight..Royler style was gear towards gettting submissions he made a mistake and Edddie Bravo got the triangle choke.

    Leo Viera style was more positional and his passes are awesome. We never got close to getting a submission but from a position standpoint he was dominate.

    lol my thoughts exactly!

    viera put on a clinic of guard passing / positional control in that match

    no real shame in eddie getting tooled like that, he was a brown belt going up against a guard passing specialist who is a nightmare matchup for him.

    Now where's the revolution? Where's the big almighty Eddie? Bark, bark, bark!
    Kiddin', guys. There's no hating here!
    *thinking: "I gotta throw some posts like this form time to time, if they feel I hate Eddie maybe they'll ban me for fighter bashing". Puts the little finger in the corner of the mouth and laughs ironically: "BWAHAHAHA"*

    Much respect to Eddie Bravo for "surviving", but omg, he looked like a helpless kid in comparison to Viera. Thats how I feel EVERY class. lol

    I heard Eddie said he didn't prepare mentally for this fight. Leo Veira is sick with his jiu jitsu and I heard he wanted to prove a point. He won ADCC last year for his weight class. The guy is so technical and is always coming up with new moves.

    Eddie should sue Leozinho for rape.
    Now seriously, how lucky was Bravo to get out of that Armtriangle? Probably the biggest pwnage ive seen without a submission in Grappling sports.

    Leozinho is the man fer ser. I've read that his gameplan going into that match was to pass to Eddie's weak side. I guess he had noticed that Eddie always played half-gaurd to one side. Very smart.

    Still, subbing Royler (and Dalla prior to that I believe) is something to be proud of.

    I always hear Eddie doesn't get the respect he feels he deserves for beating Royler. I think its because he didn't win the whole thing. If he had won the entire event, then there could be no argument, and the revolution would have ensued. But because he lost the next match, I think it's easy to dismiss him as getting lucky or being a fluke. That's not how I percieve it, but probably how the Gracies and Eddie haters rationalize the defeat.

    It looked like Leo just let go for whatever reason. I gather from the purple color of Eddie's face that if he would have held on to it he would've had the tap.

    Viera did put on a show on how to pass the guard and get side position. I am surprised that Bravo got out of the arm triangle. Jiu-Jitsu is about proper position but now with all of that aside what ever happened with beating an opponent down and submitting him. Yeah, Viera won on points due to excellent passing but that is it.

    Shame on any fighter who lets a match go to the refs, becasue he does not beat his opponent out right and he puts his fight in the hands of others.

    I've heard others that are not Gracies dismiss his victory over Royler as a fluke, please do not tar everyone with the same broad brushstroke next time.

    The match didn't go to the refs, Viera won comfortably on points.

    Your welcome, thanks for all the objective responces.

    BTW, I have Eddie's new book. I found the sequence layout of the photos in the book, ackward in its flow. And the techniques he demonstrates, are techniques that "Nino Shembri" used to use on me 10 years ago when he did an 8 month stent, teaching at our academy.

    I heard Viera felt Eddie was one sided and worked him on his bad sides the whole fight, also Eddie was just no match for vieras standing guard passes and what not, I gurantee u Eddie would do better now but I think Viera would win again sorry to say lol

    royler was beating eddie without problem, then lost his balance at the best possible time for eddie.

    i think in a rematch, royler would win.


    and on that vid

    damn, eddie got pwned pretty bad, he didnt' have an answer for anything.
