    Going out on a limb has nothing to do with it. I provide expert fight breakdowns based on how I see the fight playing out not on what the risky pick will be. Maybe that's why you are so inconsistent with your predictions.

    As for what everyone said in this blog. You said it would be a much better fight for rosholt, barrett said there was no way rosholt get submitted, gutfirst said rosholts wrestling is far superior, and lotta came in after the fight to say miller has strong wrestling and bjj. Good call guys.

    Yes, on this blog... On the other blog, however, JensenS may have been the only one calling for a Rosholt win. There may have been one other guy if I recall correctly. This fight was about the same in terms of Jake's ability to win it, only that Rosholt's challenge was on the ground, rather than on the feet. Rosholt just has a very, very long way to go before he's ready for anyone that's solid in MMA. Hes a very good wrestler, I just don't think he's a fighter.

    And this was a much, much better fight for Rosholt, he didn't get injured at all. Against Sakara, he likely would be sitting in a hospital bed right now.
    Lets go Brent!

    Can we focus on barret for a minute? I have not seen a prediction that far off base since Leglace guaranteed a massenzio win right and then Massenzio got brought out to the cage in a wheelchair.

    As for the part you commented on, I took his word that rosholt had done well in grappling tournys but as you can see by reading the rest of my post I stayed true to my assessment that miller would be too skilled on the ground for him.

    Barrett really bombed on this one. He has showed some solid analytical skills for the fight game even showing insight that pjersey provides but in this situation pjersey showed who the king of fight breakdowns is. Barret come eat your crow and praise pjersey.
    That is an understatement.

    A few things went wrong for me. I have never seen a fighter go from prospect to the bigs, I usually pick them up after arriving, and I obviously didn't appreciate the huge talent jump to the UFC. Additionally I believed the hype because I wanted to. I was always a fan of Rosholt the wrestler and wanted to be a fan of Rosholt the MMA fighter. Put it all together and I was totally clueless on this one.

    Additionally I wonder what this does for the Team Takedown model. Rosholt certainly hasn't improved like he could be expected to. Is it that he just doesn't have what it takes to be a fighter? Or does the gauranteed salary dull the edge needed to grow in a new sport? It certainly seemed like he was not too crushed by the defeat. I wonder how long he sticks around in MMA.
