    The entire card was fuckin' awesome. M1 events remind me of PRIDE. Great set of rules and I love the ring. but I have no idea why Aleks tried to be like his brother and fight Monson where he's strongest. Monson is right up there with Werdum for best HW grappler.

    To this day?
    I would argue that but yeah Monson was one of the few HWs known for his Jits,
    and he has A LOT of subs. THIS is one of his better ones (name wise).

    dunno about best jits, but he's the king of the north south choke for sure. 9th win via the move according to wiki.

    Guy has 10 north south chokes now I believe. His problem is getting the fight to the ground. Once it's there he's good to go, but Aleks wins a rematch 9 times out of 10 if he fights smart.

    mmonson is tough if ugrapple with him..lol..

    plus hes got an iron chin so hes hard to knock out..

    however, an accurate striker with excellent takedown defense would humble him.

    Not the states.

    and with shitholes like m1 being your major source of income, you're forced to adopt a Jeremy Horn work ethic in order to actually pay bills.
