    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.

    I wonder if Metcalf still has the wrestling shoe print on the side of his face from Brown. I agree with your assessment in general terms. Also noticed that Brown kept that hand in Metcalf's face and that Metcalf made a point to clear it EVERY time before he tried something. That could be a potential set-up against Metcalf if he feels the need to clear the hand before shooting or locking up.

    That second granby that caught Metcalf on the side of the head was very well executed considering that Metcalf had lifted him off the mat and was returning him pretty hard when he hit it.

    Wonder if Metcalf was hurt on that Granby. He didn't seem the same after that, even in his next match.

    Or maybe Steve Brown is just a very good wrestler...

    Brown then got upended by American's Kyle Borshoff in the next round.

    You were there, weren't you Dart? Did Metcalf seem affected?

    I don't know that it affected him other than to kind of piss him off a little bit...he had a couple of pretty nice takedowns after that and was still pretty active.
