damn dude, i gotta agree with some of them comments. that triangle seemed easy?
any word on Marcelo's MMA training? he was putting it off to train for mundials or the ADCC or some event last year
my training partners all agree with you. But I think that this had a lot to do with the fact that Braulio is a lot bigger than marcello, and also because it was in the gi.
nice sweep though
Sweet. I used to train at Braulio's.
I was going to go back there this summer.
there was alot going on marcello is notorious for his nogi so I dont think its that big a deal but it was still a little ughhhh
The way that it was explained to me by my instructor is that the game gets so complex at the black belt level that really simple mistakes are often produced. He said that whenever he gets caught, it's almost always something incredibly simple that he simply wasn't thinking about.
Yeah, the triangle was textbook. The level of jiu jitsu is so high in this situation, that any small mistake (that's easy to see on video, obviously not so much in the moment) will seriously cost you.
Not the first time, Clean has subbed him in comp before.
so that makes 6 people now that have beaten marcello in comp
drysdale, jacare, pe de pano, daniel moraes, roger gracie and braulio
damn, rafael mendes also won a pretty stacked division in this tournament
Anyone can get caught........He is still elite.....
there's a reason the basics are the basics
The thing with black belts is that, they make the most basic moves look easy.
wasn't the dustin denes one at brown belt level?
i'm pretty sure marcelo lost at blue/purple/brown but i don't think those are worth mentioning
I think it was a pretty good match and yeah one mistake is all it takes. I love watching superfights at the local tourneys because they do usually end in a basic move that the other will capitalize on.
Thanks for this gave me some cool vids to watch before work this morning. I kinda had to at a co-worker who said it was boring and walked out, lol fuck him.
it looked weird to me
he just sat there. it looked weird.
No shame in getting tapped by Estima.
