    well shit. maybe we could see them in the absolutes although the extra weight and experience favors galvao it'd still be cool. not to mention his possible matchup with roger

    You think he'd try his hand in his first black belt tournament? That'd be ballsy.

    And yeah, I was just about to post this link. Damn I'm slow.

    he wouldnt stand a chance against his cousin Roger, or even Xande.

    Don't forget about Murilo Santana...the guy handled Galvao TWO times last year and I believe he's fighting Medio this year.

    Nah Todd went to Panama to help train BMA_Mat see his grip strength isn't good enough in the spider guard yet and don't get me started on his core strength.

    I think alot will depend on how he feels after his fight this weekend(roger vs yuki kondo).

    i would personally be surprised to see him, but it would be cool to see him in the mix.

    I've been telling people this for a while but no one wants to listen.

    Anyway, Kron didnt do the absolutes at the mundials last year bc the absolutes are before the weight class so I guess he didnt want to risk it or something.

    I dont think he'll do the absolute this year either.
