He is crazy to think he can do this. If Herschel Walker couldn't become a passable fighter over several years, there's is zero chance that Phil Brooks can.

CM lost the fight quickly. While I was not really a fan as I watch wrestling sporadically in recent times, I give him credit for trying. His positve attitude is good to see. I don't think he should continue this MMA career though. Im sure he has other ventures going. Nothing more to prove here.

I was sad to see Jessica Eye lose though. She put on a great performance though.

i dont get why everyone keeps saying he just started training 2 years ago (even rogan in the post fight interview) he has been training under rener gracie at the gracie academy for years! long before this past 2 years.
they put out a propaganda video of him getting his 1st stripe on his white belt a month or so ago. so silly.


man jessica eye IMO won that fight. and that guy correa is rough!

he sold the PPV really. most people tuned in to see his get beat up.

good to see fighter pay inching up too. lowest paid fighter (with no bonus we know of and without Reebok pay) was 10k. not much but better than th e5k they used to get.

He's been training there for years, but he just got his first stripe on his white belt a month or so ago? He must be really, really, really bad then.

Most people would get their first stripe after a few months of training. After several years most are high-level blue or purple belts.

It seems as if he got schooled pretty badly on the ground. Not a good match up for him for his first fight. He should have fought some amateur bouts first.

i dont disagree at all.
that said, he made 500k, and the ufc made 100mil as he was the bulk of the sales IMO. people wanted to see if he was up to the hype.

all that said, his outlook and character are solid.
