Really wanting BJ to win here but think it’s going to be hard to get passed Hall’s grappling and running around. #ufc232— Scott Holtzman (@HotSauceHoltzy) December 30, 2018

The worst part of that right there is the fact that come Monday during jiu jitsu class every leg lock guy now is gonna think he could be a UFC champion— James Vick (@JamesVickMMA) December 30, 2018
Blessed to have been able to train with @ryanhall5050 and super happy for him. At the same time, I have always loved @bjpenndotcom his style, his fearlessness and his technique. It is a bitter sweet moment @ufc #UFC232— Jordan Rinaldi (@JordanRinaldi) December 30, 2018
