My friend and instructor TJ Grant absolutely dominated Julio Paulino this weekend at UFC 119. It's not getting a lot of play with all the other storylines emerging from the PPV - and it didn't make it to the main card. But it was an absolutely one-sided BJJ beatdown. TJ's only shortcoming was that he was hunting for the submission a little too hard, hoping to put on a good show and snag a bonus. Paulino looks clueless on the ground - but once you realize he was a Pan Am Champ at blue belt, it becomes clear just how good TJ is as a brown belt. When TJ first got signed, I promised grappling fans wouldn't be disappointed. He also has some very crisp muay thai. People are saying a great matchup would be TJ vs. Amir Sadollah and I agree. Both have solid BJJ and muay thai. Keep an eye out for TJ Grant!
