Greg Jackson's resume speaks for itself and that's why top prospects continue to gravitate to the Albuquerque-based mixed martial arts gym.
Diego Brandao and John Dodson are the latest bright lights that are working with the MMA guru. Both made the finale of their respective weight divisions for Season 14 of "The Ultimate Fighter."
During this TUF 14 vlog, Brandao says he's getting a lot of new attention down in his home country. A native of Manaus, Brazil, Brandao says his mother just found about his success on the show and Saturday night appearance in the finals joking that she'll be "drinking lots of beers and getting drunk" to celebrate (2:55 mark). Brandao said he was also fired up by the fact that Brazilian legend Wanderlei Silva gave him a pep talk this week.
The effervescent Dodson is also featured on this vlog
It's going to be interesting to follow Dodson's career and his relationship with the fans. He joked about being a snitch and a mole. Will he be able to shake that label in the future or only add to his legions of haters with his delivery during interviews like this?
Dodson faces the much bigger T.J. Dillishaw at 135 pounds while Brando battles Dennis Bermudez tomorrow night on Spike.
