Brian Ebersole talks like he’s always on the verge of giving away the punchline to some elaborate joke that not only involves your mother, but every person in your family. Since MiddleEasy has been in existence, we’ve created a signature shirt for one MMA fighter, and we still believe it’s the greatest shirt in the history of the sport. Brian Ebersole’s ‘Hairrow’ shirt is something of legend. At least we like to think it is. Since he’s been rocking the signature thread, he’s gone undefeated in the UFC and is riding a smooth ten-fight winning streak with his only loss coming via a knee injury against Hector Lombard. Looking back at the fight, Ebersole told us that he probably could have gone on to finish the fight and possibly win, but he was thinking long-term health as opposed to short-term benefit. Props to him. Don’t worry, I’ve already found the fight for you on YouTube.
We caught up with Ebersole as he temporarily relocated to Las Vegas to train with BJJ wizard Robert Drysdale for his upcoming UFC on FX 4 bout against TJ Waldburger. TWAS (The White Anderson Silva) told us what we all pretty much knew, the UFC welterweight division is an absolute clusterf***, and Ebersole breaks down exactly why that is in our brief interview with him. Also, be sure to follow Twas on Twitter at @TwasEbersole — don’t worry, he already wants to be your best friend.
