Eddie Bravo leaves the UFC

Eddie Bravo full lotus high

Gareth A. Davies from the London Telegraph writes:

[Eddie] Bravo, who runs 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu from the Legends MMA gym in Los Angeles, and who has worked as a mainstay Octagonside with colour commentators Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg for many years, is understood by the Telegraph to have walked out on his Octaginside role with the world’s leading mixed martial arts organisation after a disagreement over his desire to corner for lightweight fighter George Sotiropoulos, of Australia. The dual role will have been seen as a conflict of interest.

This is a pretty big shock. Eddie Bravo has served with the UFC in one role or another for many years. He is good friends with UFC color commentator Joe Rogan and has helped train several UFC fighters past and present over the years.

Bravo is most well-known these days for the rubber guard, marijuana advocacy, music, and his “ultimate ass” thread on the UG.

George Sotiropoulos is scheduled to fight Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 116 this Saturday night as part of the Pay-Per-View main card. Now that Bravo has quit, does this mean he will get to corner Sotiropoulos?
