Rany Yahra - thoughts??

    Wed, 2006-10-25 18:03 — Anonymous

    Rany Yahra seems to be one of the most under rated and prolific grapplers on the planet with a high percentage of match ending Brabo/D'Arce style submissions. (He did recently suffer a "fluke" loss via guillotine choke in MMA).

    Any thoughts on this superior grappler?

    What is played up is the amount of time he spent training under Rickson Gracie, he was probably at the academy less than a year and was already a black belt at that point.

    Where did he train prior to that?

    Rani is a good staller. He also plays a good possium too. Just ask Parapina.

    hello,

    hey martypost? possum? can you think of any examples that might be posted somewhere? have never heard of a grappler playing possum. this is a very interesting idea. would really like to see that.

    thanks

    hello,

    just wondering if tournament promotions keep an archive of competitions? somewhere to find vid clips? tried looking up some on ranyyahra, but nothing really showed up. the couple that feature him are pretty cool and would like to find more.

    thanks.

    Rani has insane cardio.

    Gumby, why upon reflection should he have beaten Leo? What was with his pointing and laughing at wagney? when he beat him at adcc?

    I have some campos footage of him where he appears to be praying during his match.

    hello,

    this is an old thread but it just brought a question to mind.

    when facing an approximate equal (skill level wise), is it better to be more aggressive or more cautious? does one approach yield better results?

    thanks.

    I would say more fighters tend to be more cautious. neither one wants to lose by making a mistake. This I believe goes for JJ guys. Wrestlers are another story.

    hello,

    wrestlers? oh yeah. they seem to have the aggression thing down.

    thanks.
