Video for those who are interested but haven't seen it yet. Kind of surprised that more hasn't been made out of this match coming so soon after the "no one will ever be close to Metcalf again" match against Caldwell.
In watching it I think it helped show an interesting paradox about wrestling Metcalf that contributes to making him really tough to beat. The guys that are able to handfight with him like Palmer, and now Brown don't have good enough offense to penetrate his defense and take him down. The guys who can penetrate his defense and take him down like Jenkins can't deal with his handfighting.
I said it in the thread yesterday that this was definitely one of those close but not really matches but regardless I was really impressed by Steve Brown. Kid didn't given an inch. He didn't stall, and he didn't gas. May have even been in on Metcalf more than Metcalf was in on him, I didn't count so I can't say for sure. Testament to how good Metcalf is that he made his count in his usual fashion.
Metcalf showed his underrated (and yes I think this attribute of his is actually underrated as no one really talks about it) ability to scramble out of and away from takedowns several times.
