Knockout of the Day: Even Before ‘TUF’, Diego Brandao Was a Scary Motherf*cker

(Brandao vs. Casteel @ Evolution 1, 10/30/10. Fight begins at the 1:58 mark and ends 40 seconds later. The ref is kind of a dick afterwards. Props: landsharkian)

As Johnny Bedford observed on Wednesday, TUF 14 featherweight finalist Diego Brandao is not unbeatable; in fact, he entered the reality show with a journeyman’s record of 13-7. But when he’s on his game, he’s as dangerous a fighter as you’ll ever see. Here’s a video from Brandao’s pre-UFC career, in which he starches Michael Casteel with a counter right hook within the first minute of their fight. It’s that kind of power that could give Dennis Bermudez serious headaches when they meet up at the finale show tomorrow night in Las Vegas. Was Michael Bisping right to predict future UFC stardom for the Madman from Manaus?

Those announcers are better than Goldie and Rogan.

I wish Brandao coulda hit the ref. The ref should learn not to get so aggro with the fighters. It's a pussy move you see security guards/cops do cuz they know the other guy can't retaliate.

Jesus Christ.

I think they'll be scooping out Bermudez' brains with a god damn soup ladle after the fight on Saturday night.

Kid Clam, I just finished the 4th season of Breaking Bad. Holy shit balls that was awesome.

His record is pretty shitty and it looks like he's lost to a few nobodies by KO. I wonder what his problem is. Gas tank maybe?

the announcer looked like a ginger kenny florian after slamming a cock meat sandwhich.

and so if you win a fight in that promotion your reward is to get dry humped by the refs? jon fitch does have a post fight career.

play sandstorm again!

How is it hype? He knows what losing is like, He's going in there Hungry and ready.. I don't see how it's sabotage.

I think the ref is just against hitting fighters while they're planking. The biggest douche is the guy doing the interview after the fight.

All this hype is going to sabotage this kid. Calling it here!
