    He supports him. He did an interview on the fightworks podcast and talked about EB a little bit.

    from my understanding JJM helped eddie in the development of his system. that being the case, i'm pretty sure he approves.

    It's funny. On that fightworks podcast JJM pretty much says that a BJJ practiotioner has to start off in the gi to get the sensitivity to grapple and every grappler needs to develop their own style and not pick up someone else's, but in the end (epilogue) he essentially says.

    "Hey Eddie! Keep doing what you are doing. Fuck the haters!"

    A kind of conflicted opinion. Either way, it sounds like JJM and Bravo get along great. Better than what most peoiple would expect.

    LOL I thought this thread was about machado being on the TV network called Bravo. And then when you wrote "Macho" I was thinking "what, does he have some gay students that he doesn't like or something?".

    I think its mostly a distance thing, but there aren't a lot of guys who train at both schools on a regular basis.
