    Two of the best fighters in south Florida will collide on Wednesday, Feburary 15th as TUF 12 champion Jonathan Brookins of Gracie Orlando (13-4) takes on multiple-time BJJ champion and ADCC competitor  Vagner "Ceara" Rocha (7-2) of The Avengers/Team Popovitch on the preliminary card of UFC on Fuel TV 1 - Sanchez vs. Ellenberger, which will stream on Facebook. Unfortunately, for Brookins, Ceara has a bit more momentum going into the fight as he has already made quick work of another former TUF 12 competitor in Cody McKenzie in his last outing.

    Looks like the current 76.9Kg champion, Pablo Popovitch wont be travling alone. He will be accompanied by head instructor at his academy in Pembroke Pines, FL and training partner, Vagner Rocha. He recently won the ADCC North American Trials on Saturday,November 20th in the -76 Kg division. However getting there was not an easy task. Vagner had 5 fights total, 4 by submission, a triangle, anaconda choke, armbar, and even taking a page from the current champs arsenal finishing his 4th fight by Pablo's feared "gogozeira" choke.

    Leaders of the newly formed Avengers Bjj, Pablo Popovitch and Roberto Abreu have a new mission ahead of them, aside from the usual dominating of opponents on the mat. This mission is to help WEC fighter Will Ribero, who suffered a devastating motorcycle accident back in 2008 that stopped the fighter's career in its tracks. The fighter's family has since struggled to raise enough funds for his treatment.  Once again the superhero duo has stepped up to help. They will each hold a seminar at their respective academies with the proceeds going to help Ribero.
