    This last weekend I had the privelege of competing in the 2013 IBJJF Las Vegas Spring International Open and after two hard fights I came away with the bronze medal! My first fight was against the baseball bat choker Magid Hage of Gracie Barra who I defeated with a guard pass (video coming soon) and my second fight was against the reigning middleweight world champion Otavio Sousa, also of Gracie Barra, who after six minutes of hard fighting with the score standing 0-0 was able to catch me in an armbar from the closed guard (video above).

    While drug testing has not been done in most BJJ tournaments, it looks like the IBJJF is trying to level the playing field for their first big tournament of the year. That is because at the Pan Jiu-Jitsu Championships, planned to be held from March 20-24, the IBJJF is going to have an anti-doping testing program implemented. The testing is going to be done by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).
