It’s been tense going to press for the greatest Jiu-Jitsu magazine on the planet. The GRACIEMAG editor-in-chief asks the trainee to help out in revising Training Program of the month, with guard techniques taught by Bruno Frazatto, while the team got to wrapping up the cover—which is a sight to behold, by the way.
“I can’t right now,” says the newbie, wagging a finger. “This here is serious. I’m concentrating to figure out who’s going to take it—Demian or Weidman.” And he starts rubbing his forehead, his eyes shut tight. His baseball cap gets slapped off his head and goes whizzing through the air right away. Not enough to distract him from such an important mission.
Ten seconds later, he bustles up, his tongue sticking out of the side of his mouth, to hand in his complete list of picks, scrawled on a Bibi Sucos snack bar napkin.
The alternative was to rip it up and watch him cry, or publish it and watch him cry… from joy. No one is so heartless on a Friday. So here go The Trainee’s Picks for UFC on Fox. Check them out if you have the courage, and send us in your own predictions, dear reader.
