From a local paper today:

“He didn’t tap out or verbally tap, but he did yell out in pain, so the referee stopped the fight," he said. “It was very close for me to just breaking his arm, so that was that. I’ve had a million armbars on and it was a mat­ter of time before that thing broke."

It was a terrible way for a fight to end. But people saying Roller got robbed need to think of TJ, too. He may well have been robbed of sub of the night.

Fernando Yamasaki owes TJG $65K!!

TTT for the 'Chronically Horrid'

also TJ did get screwed out of a bonus, hopefully got some lockerroom love from Zuffa.

Sherdog is suggesting a fight between Grant and Wiman, which makes a lot of sense.

I'd also like to see TJ fight Nate Diaz.

The arm was about to snap but still if Roller wants to break his own arm, let him do that

 I'm one of Grant's biggest fans.

My instructor used to be his training partner so I've been following TJ for years. I'm thrilled that he got the sub win

FUN FACT: TJ Grant hails from the same city as NHL superstar Sidney Crosby does, Cole Harbour Nova Scotia.

Why would Fernando owe him money for correctly enforcing the rules?

^ I hear you. I agree that it was within the rules. I am just saying that anyone who thinks it was premature should realize it probably cost TJ more than it did Roller.

Hey Jack - who do you train with?

Fun Fact: Cole Harbour is the Jersey Shore of Nova Scotia.

Born and raised in Cole Harbour you have no idea what you are talking about.

If he wants to have it happen, he can't scream out in pain. That's reason enough for the ref to stop the fight. Silently gritting it out is the way it happens. Or fighting Paul Harris where he'll continue to sink it even after the ref steps in.

Easy killers. I train at FitPlus - I was just poking a bit of fun at my CH friends.

Clearly the Jersey Shore of Nova Scotia is Lower Sackville.

Honestly, I don't think anybody did anything wrong... I just think they need to change the rule. No more verbal tapping period, if you can't tap with our arms, tap with your feet.

I hate the idea of seeing more breaks and tears, but at the end of the day, we're all men (and women). Protecting yourself is your responsibility alone while conscience.

Yeah Grant is not on Miller's level in LW rankings but it's a great match up.
Grant vs George Sots would be awesome!

Cole Harbour is the Jersey Shore.

Lower Sackville is ... Fucking terrible.

Eastern Passage is any backwood slum town filled with flannel.

I really hope this is not a serious post....
