Jose Aldo Highlights

By: Lyotodossantos

Jose Aldo (24-1) has been WEC/UFC Featherweight champion since 2009. He’s defended the title 8 times since taking it off Mike Brown. An interesting note is that of those 9 title fights (and in Aldo’s career for that matter), Aldo had never been in a rematch. Til now.

Nova Uniao’s last champ standing, the man currently ranked #2 P4P in MMA, will have his first rematch when he faces off against arch rival Team Alpha Male’s Chad Mendes (16-1) in Brazil for a 2nd time. Since stopping Mendes in their first fight in 2012, Aldo’s gone on to beat the Korean Zombie, Ricardo Lamas, and former UFC Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.

As Brazil’s last champion at the moment, the pressure’s going to be on in front of the home Rio De Janiero crowd.

Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes 2, UFC 179, Saturday (Oct. 25th).

Wow. I have to find this match

My daughter gets first place in our in-house tournament. She’s come a long way from being nervous about sparring.



If Ronda says it…

I kinda call horse-shit on this.

Reblogging to agree. Horse shit.

Flying armbar

Stepped in to teach the kids class yesterday. Only one kid showed, an 8-10 year old girl. She’s got a killer triangle (legitimately). So, we were working on guard pulls into the triangle. Then armbar. She was getting it down so quickly, I figured she might as well learn how to do a flying armbar.

I feel sorry for her next opponent.


Michelle Nicolini Highlights

By: Preston Smith

7x BJJ World Champion and Abu Dhabi champion Michelle Nicolini (2-0) returns to the cage this Friday (Oct. 17th) at Legacy FC 36 to face Invicta FC veteran and former collegiate wrestler Norma Rueda Center (2-1). This will be the 32 year old Brazilian’s first time fighting under the Legacy FC. The fight will take place at strawweight.

The return of guard passing. If Keenan is doing it, it must be cool. 

You can pull guard and still be a top game player. Guilherme Mendes breakdown via BishopBJJ
