    BJJ at Nova Uniao Plus post BBQ challenge matches at CR

    Mon, 2013-08-12 12:27 — thheffelfinger

     This past week has been a busy one. Nicole and I moved over to the Connection Rio(CR) HQ. So, the first part of the week was spent packing and unpacking, and the start of many small projects around the Connection Rio hostels. One thing is for certain in Brazil, it's never all work and no play; I got some great training in this week along with some BBQing and a night of athletic challenges.

    TUFF N' NUFF Aug 2nd Orleans hotel and casino Las Vegas

    Mon, 2013-08-05 22:24 — ALFREDO BORREGO

     Once again Tuff N Uff put on a great show complete with knockouts submissions, and upsets. The most impresive fight of the night was Jamin Tabaya Vs. JP Bwrede. Jamin displayed patience and timing as he continually scored big with a lightning fast left hand. Tabaya scored an early knockdown moments into the fight. A powerful left cross found its target on the head of Jp Bwrede three sepreate times, the last of which left JP Bwrede sleeping on the canvass. Jamin Tabay went home with another impresive victory for the Torres System fighting team.
