    Today on The FightWorks Podcast cohost Dan and I start off by discussing the results of the most recent BJJ Poll (Should Blue and White Belts Be Allowed to Perform Heel Hooks?), with help from a listener who called in.

    We will also get the scoop on the Copa Alliance which was held November 1st in Sao Paulo, Brazil from Steve Hall, aka Pesadelo Triangulo, an Alliance brown belt who made the journey to compete just that one day, returning the next! Pesadelo’s report confirms that Fabio Gurgel (aka, “The General”) and Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti are indeed creating new Brazilian jiu-jitsu secret weapons we can expect to see in the future.

    Our feature interview this week comes by way of FightWorks Podcast contributor Bruce Hoyer, who caught up with Braulio Estima, one of Gracie Barra’s big guns. Estima won the following medals in recent years (among others):

    * 2006 heavyweight Pan-Ams gold medalist
    * 2006 middle heavyweight Mundials gold medalist
    * 2008 heavyweight and absolute division no-gi Pan-Ams gold medalist
    * 2008 middle heavyweight Mundials silver medalist

    In the interview, Estima talks about training in London with Roger Gracie, cornering Zelg Galesic in his match against Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in DREAM, his own MMA ambitions, and tons more.
