12:10 PM ET 01.02 | After finishing three of his last four opponents with submissions, TJ Waldburger admits jiu-jitsu isn't as popular in the UFC as it used to be, and he wants to change that. "I want [fans] to have that knowledge of jiu-jitsu and be excited to see the fight on the ground the whole time if it ends up being that way," Waldburger said. "A lot of fans diss on the jiu-jitsu, but they really don't know all the technique that's with it, all the movements and everything. Everyone wants to see an awesome knockout, which is totally cool, but there's not enough credit with the jiu-jitsu and I want to bring that back."
