That was a very impressive performance. This guy must surely have a big future in MMA. Hopefully someone can post some pics/vids in here.

Could be a future champ at 155lb.

Just surprised I've not seen more discussion on this fight.

I thought this was setup as a shoe-in for Kitaoka so the Jap fans to celebrate an easy submission victory...

Kicks to the head on the ground when both guys are grounded should be legal, shame it isnt in the US.

For sure, big part of keeping grapplers honest

Definitely looking to see Brooks fight again that suplex he hit was insane. Im sure UFC and Bellator will both be calling

Brooks is seriously a good fighter. Ive seen him fight on the local circuit in Chicago and he's always been impressive.

Hopefully UFC picks him up. Im sure Monty Cox is on it....

Hopefully UFC picks him up? Why, so they can give him 2 fights a year, and probably will never have a chance for a title shot? He has better luck signing with OneFC, probably get more fights there, whether you think OneFC has no competition. Fuck UFC.

Will is a good friend and has spent most of his career fighting for us at the XFO. Great kid, super talented, a rising star for sure. When it was announced he was going to fight Aoki on NYE I actually got voted down in the thread because I thought he could hang and possibly win. Kid is a talent for sure and a 155lber to watch. Used to train with Clay Guida at Midwest Training Center and just recently went to ATT and Jackson's before this camp.

Do you still talk to him a lot? If so, any idea what he plans for his future? Stay with Dream/OneFC, or does he want to fight in the States/Unified rules.

Oh yeah. He's signing with Bellator...contract arrived yesterday. Monte's been trying to get him into the UFC for about a year now. Clearly didn't happen but happy for him with the Bellator move

They did pass...he was technically an alternate. Will is a very quiet guy, not boastful and definitely not outspoken like they wanted in the house. I think that had a lot to do with it.

He certainly wouldn't have been drunk asking people to "let him bang."

would have been good to have a silent assassin type in the house. he'll do well in bellator. but ultimately he looks ufc bound.
