    Grappling wizard Robert Drysdale makes his MMA debut this Friday October 17th for the TUFF-N-UFF promotion against 18 year old Josh Musick, who carries a 5-0 amateur record according to mixedmartialarts.com.

    Drysdale is considered a superstar on the grappling scene, having won the ADCC Open division 2007 title by submitting Marcello Garcia. Grappling credentials have never been a guarantee of success, as fellow matt wizards Marcello Garcia and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza can attest after losing their MMA debuts via TKO stoppage and KO respectively. However, as Brazilian jiu-jitsu coach at Xtreme Couture, Drysdale will surely have developed some useful MMA skills to supplement his world class submission game. He has also recently appeared as grappling coach for Team Mir on the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter.

    Look for MMA's newest hot prospect to take no chances and make use of his skills by taking this one to the deck early.

    Maybe they agreed that Drysdale won't take it to the ground?

    how is that unfair? the kid has more mma experience than drydale and has been in more fights than drysdale. Both of them have 0-0 professional mma record. Thats fair to me.

    Yeah ok you are right, putting an 18 year old kid up against the best grappler in the world who teaches at one of the best camps in the world and trains twice a day there is a completely evenly matched fight

    I don't think this kid would be ready for him either.

    I mean 5-0 amateur career is pretty slick, but everything is different with the smaller gloves and when the leg pads come off.

    Depends on what state you are in.

    NJ is 7oz gloves and leg pads.
    No Kicking to the head while standing.
    No elbows ever
    No strikes to the face when on the ground
    No Scirone locks and a few other submissions aren't allowed
