Barnett crushed him. Gotta love that guy, always working on his game and staying in shape.
I fuckin love his catch style wrestling. I really wish he didn't test poz so him and Fedor could have fought .
barnett doesnt belong in these tournaments. dude is a huge and talented grappler. he should be taking part in superfights against equal competition to headline these tournaments.
He's clearly overqualified for these kinds of things, but if the dude wants to constantly compete he's got no choice but to enter every tourney he can. I'm not that down with the grappling scene but I thought the big tourneys don't come around too often
he's in california. we have "big" tourneys here all the time.
That guy he's fighting looks tiny next to him. Is he like 150lbs?
Yeah but he has 3 years BJJ, 2 years judo, 1.5 years MT, and 12 years TKD
never gets old
The BJJ, judo and MT were all lumped in on top of one another too.
But neither came out on top, there was a 3-way tie for 3rd place
this is stupid.
ANYONE worth their salt in grappling knows that even a fucking 10-20 pound advantage is tremendous in a tournament. Now Barnett is like 260, and this smaller dude was no more than 200 lbs. 210 max.
Barnett could have been grappling like absolute SHIT. And I mean like bjj white belt shit, and still probably would have had the edge.
I'd like to see Barnett vs Mark Kerr again, or him vs Xande, Roger, or Drysdale.
I actually think Barnett went easy on him and let him experience it a bit more. The way he threw on whatever the fuck lock that was it seemed like he could have done it off the takedown.
That is the talent that showed up to the tournament. You gonna blame Josh for some light weight dude entering a open weight division? He is getting out there and putting in work.
I'm not blaming Josh for anything. He's a good grappler, and a big dude. I think its stupid when people blow his wins out of proportion and act like he is the greatest grappler ever, based off of fights against vastly lighter opponents. I think that kind of praise should be saved for when he beats Kerr, Xande, Roger, and/or Drysdale.
he won worlds
It's not like his style is anything new though. I mean he does pretty much that except added striking in fights.
How do you feel about Brock Lesnar?
brock isnt entering small time local grappling tourneys.
I feel similarly. I've said this before, the UFC heavyweight division is not good. 205 to 265 is such a huge gap, there are very very few people who are at the upper end of that spectrum. MOST of the fighters are somewhere in the middle. Compared to any of the other divisions, this is vastly different. (99% of the people in the other divisions have weighed in at the same weight during weigh ins).
Brock beating a guy who is like 235 soaking wet is NOT as impressive as say, GSP beating up another guy who is also 170.
