    Hey guys!!

    Back in November I was given the honor of fighting in the Black Belt Grand Prix at Renzo Gracie’s World Jiu-Jitsu Expo. I had five matches and ended up making it all the way to the semi-finals, making for probably the best performance of my first year at black belt. I had two submissions, one win on points, one loss to Jackson Sousa by 3-3 on points and 2-1 on advantages and then unfortunately I lost the semi-final to a really tough and humble competitor in James Puopolo by 4-0. Below is the video of my first fight from the event. Below is the video of my third fight from the event which was against brown belt Shiloh Roberts. Stay tuned as I will be posting the rest of the fights here “em breve”. Osssssssssssss

    MMA Community Mourns the Passing of Joe Camacho

    Mon, 2013-12-16 19:04 — Benjamin Bieker

     In this life there are many things that you can be remembered for, but the thing that will always have people holding a special place in their heart for you is the quality of your character. This is could not be any more poignant than the sadness that anyone in the MMA community feels with the recent passing of Joe Camacho. The general public may scratch their head as to who Camacho, but for those engrossed in the sport of MMA and BJJ they knew him as one of the nicest guys in the sport. 

    Brian Ortega Awarded Black Belt Before RFA Title Fight

    Thu, 2013-12-12 19:17 — Benjamin Bieker

    When Brian "T-City" Ortega heads to the cage at RFA 12 to face Keoni Koch for the vacant RFA featherweight strap, he will already have earned a belt that means just as much as a world title in MMA. That would be his Black Belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, which he received on Saturday from Rener Gracie and Ryron Gracie at the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, California.
