Default Will Brooks Joins Bellator

Interesting to see him against a merely decent crop of fighters but let's pray he doesn't win a title. Catch 22 situation here, although an eventual matchup with Chandler-Hawn winner (both very good fighters IMO) could be interesting down the line.

A well rounded fighter this Brooks, very good prospect it seems, for those that didn't see him the other week. Very impressive performance against a very experienced grappler and MMA veteran. EDIT: Very, very good? Nah, the kid looks a little bit special in fact.

He looks like and interesting prospect but he shouldnt play to much on the ground when his opponent bread and butter is his ground game

Well let's enjoy the ride. Benson Henderson has done pretty well so far.

Brooks actually threw the fight ending G'N'P when playing footsies. Pretty impressive stuff.

Particularly impressive considering Kitaoka is something of a leglock specialist.

Exactly. Okay, not exactly a prolific fighter in the last few years but a real solid veteran for an untested prospect.

Brooks looks rounded.
