As I write this, I’m about thirty feet away from Wallid Ismail and he is now in possession of an ‘Angry Wallid Ismail‘ shirt. Aside from this picture that may (or may not) make your head explode from sheer paradoxical amazement, we got the entire moment on video and it will definitely be published on MiddleEasy in the immediate future. Now one can only imagine what Wallid thought about Roger Gracie slapping a sub on Trevor Prangley in the first round.
For some odd reason, I’ve been surrounding myself with a lot of jiu-jitsu guys for the past two months and every single one agrees that Roger Gracie is the greatest jiu-jitsu practitioner in MMA. Tonight, Roger improved his record to 4-0 and has given everyone in the light heavyweight division a reason not to go on the ground with him. Props to Roger on his massive win, now let’s see King Mo vs. Roger Gracie inside the cage — since we all know that’s going to happen, eventually.
