Article on Bloody Elbow for UFC 129

Neil Melanson is the head submission grappling coach for Xtreme Couture, Las Vegas and was kind enough to take part in an interview I conducted ahead of Randy Couture's UFC 129 bout with Lyoto Machida. Much will be written about Randy Couture over the next couple of weeks as well as the main event of Georges St Pierre vs Jake Shields. Rather than talking about the specifics of Couture's fight with Machida I decided to put the focus on Melanson as an opportunity to find out more about him and some of the other fighters he coaches, as well as address some of the controversy surrounding him among the online grappling community.
