    Does the school pay you to promote them or something?

    Yep. This is nearly as dumb as the coin advertisment a while back.

    I swear the next post is going to be about how Ryron and Rener rescued Metamoris by sweetalking another investor into ponying up money in order to save the world from not experiencing Bravo/Royler 2.

    This is crazy but awesome. It boggles my mind that Munoz & Machida can be training partners before fighting each other with so much at stake. That's some serious mental maturity and strength of character.

    And then the two brothers in opposing corners. How is that not super awkward to them? I feel weird just competing at regional BJJ tournies against guys I've previously met at open mats.

    Also, Lyoto is shredded at 185. HOT STUFF

    Don't understand the hate here. How is this dumb? It's a fascinating situation.

    How can anyone not respect the fact that Munoz and Machida train at Gracie Torrance?

    I guess this is newsworthy, but the other spam threads causes push-back.

    I'm missing the fascinating part about this situation.

    I've dropped in at Marcelo's for one week periods, two different times.

    Do I train at Marcelo's academy?

    Very interesting stuff, but this is never going to turn into a BJJ match because Lyoto is never actually taking it to the ground unless it is to finish off a half-conscience Munoz.

    I wonder if there will even be any grappling involved. Interesting situation. I didn't know Munoz trained with Ryron, and I didn't know either of them trained with Rener and Ryron to the point that either one of them would be a cornerman for the fight.

    Why the hell would you want them as
    Cornermen?

    They are not veteran competitors in anything.

    "cornerman" in the sense of the chess game of what to do when the fight hits the ground.
