My quick thoughts: Calestine takes the left hand side of the bracket. Outside of Geo on the right hand side, the right hand side of the bracket is a tad easier. Domingos looked flat his last outing, Berbrich and the others haven't blown me away in any past footage I've seen. Sergio may catch someone with his strange guard that he gets to from a donkey guard like entry, and win his first round match. It's a tough game to prepare for or adjust to on the fly (was fortunate enough to roll with him at Baret Yoshida's school whilst visiting San Diego last fall. Calestine is my pick, not because he's RGA associated but because I've rolled with him, and recall him skating through the Onnit and Finishers Sub Only Invitaionals. First round picks are: Calestine, Hayden, Battle, Davila, Geo, Sergio, Domingos, and Berbrich. 2nd round Davila beats Battle, Calestine beats Hayden, Geo beats Sergio, and Domingos beats Berbrich. Calestine beats Davila, Geo beats Domingos, and Calestine beats Geo.

Imagine if every woman who signed the petition to open the Masters 1-7 at IBJJF (where already a ridiculous amount of medals given out are participation or show up and face no one medals), actually ordered this PPV and supported an event paying women competitors to do JiuJitsu. That would make waaaaay too much sense. Anyone complaining about the IBJJF in its varying degrees and not shelling out their money to support other events is just that....a complainer.
