    The 24-year old Miner is about to submit another BJJ black belt in Ed Herman :D
    I always enjoy this wild young man fights and rooting for him yet again. It's interesting he has 24 pro-MMA fights already!

    Krylov always brings it. Pretty impressive resume for his age. Guy is a master of sport in 3 different disciplines. At 24 lol.

    I used to really dislike Krylov. But bumbling his way through the ground game submitting BJJ black belts has won me over. DC better watch his ass Krylov coming for dat belt!

    I hope Krylov tightens his technique up, I am a fan of watching him fight. But his style makes me be tense af, as he could get ko'd at any point.

    Fun guy to watch but he isn't going anywhere. Really sloppy and didn't impress in his last fight, he looked gassed before the first round was over.


    As for his 24 fights... by the looks of his record he was fighting non entities outside Burger King or some shit - his first 5 fights inside the space of 30 days lol

    Krylov is so clumsy in his skills but he ends up winning and tapping out black belts. He's on a 4 fight win streak so he's definitely doing something right. Herman is a good fight for him. Well known name, veteran with a lot of experience. Krylov wins via RNC :D

    As much as I love Ed, at this point, he is nothing more than a gimme fight for Nikita. After this fight, I hope Nikita finally gets the recognition that he deserves. And hopefully, he gets a chance to redeem his fluke/corrupt loss to OSP.

    the thing yu gotta understand about BJJ academy websites: too many of them are not updated regularly. I believe Herman is indeed a BJJ black belt.

    Correct, Ed is only a brown belt.

    His UFC page has been updated recently and still only shows in his bio that he is a Brown Belt.

    This place is not for extremists. Find yourself a more suitable forum.

    I'm ready for him to face a top ten opponent. Happy to see him fight though.
