Dont blame me for the crappy editing and music.

I kept hearing how he got dominated and then choked out, but that was a really good match (he was down on points though before he got choked, so I could see where people would say that).
How old is Kron now? Is he about 19?
Who beat him?
Good on him! Who is Alliance?
Alliance is one of the best BJJ clubs out there but I don tknow its origins can anyone elaborate?
Alliance is one of the most famous jiu-jitsu teams in the world, which was started by Romero "Jacare" Cavalcanti. He began training jiu-jitsu in 1963 at age eleven and eventually joined the famous Gracie school in Copacabana, Brazil, which is where he grew up. In 1982 he was awarded the rank of black belt from the legendary Rolls Gracie. He later opened his own school known as Alliance, which eventually became one of the most successful and respected teams in the world of jiu-jitsu.
Now with the likes of Fabio Gurgel, Alexandre Paiva, Leo Vieira, Ricardo Vieira, Roberto Traven, Rodrigo Medeiros, Marcelo Garcia, Rubens "Cobrinha" Charles, Tarsis Humphreys, Rodrigo Damm, Chris Moriarty, Fabio Clemente, Josh Griffiths, Jeff Joslin, Hugo Fevrier, and Sergio Moraes, Alliance has won countless championships all over the world.
Today Jacare is a 6th degree black belt with his operations based out of Atlanta, Georgia. In 2005 he was inducted into the Grappling Hall of Fame. There are representatives of the Alliance team stretching across the globe, including the United States, Canada, England, France, Germany, Finland, Greece, Croatia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Brazil.
HAHAHA at Bevois!!!! Your BJJ knowledge astounds me. I am envious.
I am also off to study more BJJ history.
You must not forget about the team before Alliance which was called Master. Master begot Alliance and Brasa. Did anyone catch the battling chants when Cobrihna and Galvao had the respective matches at the Worlds this past weekend. Both teams chanted Terere's name but Alliance said something that made Damien Maia facial expression change to what seemed like anger. Does anyone know what they said?
What what type of style are Alliance fighters? do they focus on a top game bottom game or combo of both?
Thanks for posting that. What a match. Not too shabby on the editing either.
