Trainees, as you know, are sort of like those flyweight fighters: they don’t make as much money, no one knows their names, but everyone has a lot of fun with them.
Things are no different with the GRACIEMAG.com trainee, as we wear a patient face in dealing with our worthy pupils, even while dishing out the most scathing of tongue-lashings.
That’s what went down this week, when the trainee, once again, asked that his predictions for this Friday’s UFC be posted.
“Shoot, boss… I nailed almost all of them for UFC 140! And nothing will make me change my mind about that ref told Minotauro to stop punching the back of Mir’s head just to get at me…” he said shamelessly.
I dunno; could be Christmas goodwill, could be madness, but here go—perhaps for the last time—the Trainees UFC 141 Picks. Send yours in to try and humiliate the smug handicapper.
