    Brazilians on the Rise after UFC Fight Night 28

    Thu, 2013-09-05 18:32 — Benjamin Bieker

     It is official, Glover Teixeira is the new number on contender for the light-heavyweight title. Of course, that position did not come without a scare, and that scare came out of the unlikeliest of places, Ryan Bader's hands. Bader was able to connect with Teixeira's chin, and he had the Brazilian nearly on the ropes and out of the fight. That is when one of the greatest comebacks happened with Teixeira stepping forward and landed two clean shots that effectively ended the fight.

    Yan Cabral and Leo Santos Seminar at Nova Uniao

    I spent a lot of last week in the kimono working my ground game. In addition to Dennis' class, that due to rain we had inside Premiere house, I also made it into Nova Uniao several times. As always the technique and rolling was great. One aspect I like is that that as NU they work takedown techniques a lot more than most gyms I have been to in Rio. A lot of places will just drill entries into takedowns or throws very lazily as part of the warm up; at NU they will actually show and work defense and offense from the feet and sometimes include short live situational goes from standing.

    The Power of BJJ at UFC 164

    Tue, 2013-09-03 09:51 — Benjamin Bieker

     The power of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was on display at UFC 164 even though there was only two submissions on the whole card. Ironically, they came in the first and last fights of the night. In the first fight of the night, Magnus Cebenblad too out Jared Hamman in under a minute with a guillotine choke. It was the first submission loss of Hamman's career, and it was the fastest that he had been finished. For Cebenblad, it was his first win in the Octagon all with the power of BJJ.
