Popovich: I would have grappled Eddie Bravo at ADCC for free

source: crooklynscorner.com

With the recent controversy over the circumstances surrounding the proposed ADCC match between Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie still on the minds of the fans and media, we were able to get Pablo’s opinion regarding the situation:

“Man, my opinion is Royler wanted a lot of money, and supposedly, the sheikh knew about that, because I was there, training with him, while this whole conversation was happening, in Abu Dhabi. He wanted too much money, and then, he wasn’t worth it to them, to invest..."

Eddie Bravo invented the ADCC. And whenever you post a comment, it's actually called Mission Control.

The title made me think he was challenging Eddie, but I see why you did it. If it had been an accurate description of the article I wouldn't have clicked it.You got me.

the "would've" is important because it indicates that the statement is conditional and you need to read the article to find out what that condition is (he would've - "if he were in roylers shoes") as it doesnt fit in the headline The headline is a direct quote and when it is in context the intention is the same, I dont see how you can say it is a misrepresentation of his statement  Thanks to Skullbong from the Rogan Board for the above quote, in reference to this issue.

Honestly? I like both guys but come on, Popovitch would run through Eddie like a freight train. Popovitch is in the prime of his career, is a ADCC champion, is younger and out weighs Bravo by 2 weight classes. Not to mention Pablo has pretty much run through everyone short of Marcelo Garcia in the past few years.
