I had over 20 MMA fights and over 50 BJJ tournaments
before anyone ever knew who I was.
Then around 2006, I was brought in by Joe Silva to fight the ex champion Jens Pulver. I was the sheep being fed to the wolves! I was supposed to lose!
But no one told me that...so I shocked the world and knocked him out in round 1...Since then I racked up 6 Submission of the Night awards and 6 Fight of the Night awards with 20 UFC fights!
I have trained extensively with Jiu Jitsu experts like BJ Penn, Reagan Penn, Ricky Lundell, Rob Kahn, Matt Arroyo, and Tim Burrill...If you put all of their stuff in a blender and mix it around...you get my style.
I am one of the few guys in the UFC who goes for the submission and the finishes the entire fight. I hate decisions!
My first love was Jiu Jitsu and when I am done fighting, I don't think I'll take another boxing class...but I will always train Jiu Jitsu. I have been training it for over 16 years.
And now, finally after all these 16 years, grappling matches, fights, awards, and training with the best grapplers in the world...I am finally going to share my knowledge with the world...
