When Tony Ferguson Got 10th Planet Black Belt [Flashback]

 

 



 

After becoming UFC Champion, Tony Ferguson receives his Black Belt from his Sensei Eddie Bravo. Eddie himself got his Black Belt after he returned from his bout where he submitted Royler Gracie in 2003. He got the original belt of Jean Jaques Machado, and he gave that belt to Tony Ferguson after becoming UFC champion.

Amazing!

Need A New High Quality Rashguard Or MMA Shorts? Check Out Sundae Knights!

 

 



 

Are you in the need for some high quality no gi gear at a great price? We suggest checking out www.sundaeknights.com.

They offer a wide variety of modern designs for men, women and children but what really stands out is the quality of the garments. There was some thought that went into making this gear.

Also the shorts have a very secure system of staying “Buttoned” without the use of any zippers or buttons (which are not ideal for MMA or No Gi BJJ). Instead there is very sturdy velcro and a string to tie the shorts tight.

Immediately I noticed that the rashguards had extra length and durable extra stitching at the bottom to prevent rashguard from riding up over your belly. (For some people this is not an attractive look at all!)

The next feature would be the way the MMA shorts are designed. Obviously the are no outside pockets for toes or fingers to get caught on. The shorts are also designed to allow full, comfortable range of motion with your legs. You can do a split in these shorts with ease.

The only real issue is that you will want to be careful to keep the string away from the velcro as the velcro is so strong that it can begin to fray the string.

This great gear could be sold for twice of what it’s worth. In general you are looking to spend about $40 per piece of gear. Be sure to use code WBBJJ at checkout to get an even better deal! We got your back!

Lastly they have a really cool limited edition gi that you can purchase as well. Be sure to check it out before you end your shopping visit to www.sundaeknights.com!

Who is DEMIAN MAIA and Why is He So Important To MMA?

 

 



 

Demian Maia is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, having been at the top of the game in both sports with titles such as World Cup Champion (BJJ – 2002 & 2003), ADCC Champion (submission wrestling – 2007) and two failed title attempts in the UFC’s middleweight (April 2010) and welterweight (July 2017) divisions. Demian is also known for having one of UFC’s longest successful submission win streaks. In the context of jiu jitsu history, Maia was at the heart of the early 2000’s Alliance Academy‘s turmoil, a case that ended in the team splitting, giving birth to the Brasa, TT and Master academies.

Demian Maia was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil on the 6th of November 1977. His fist contact with the Martial Arts world was through Judo at the tender age of 4, a sport that he practiced for 2 years. After an inactivity period, he started taking Karate and Kung-Fu classes by his own initiative. He was 12 and he trained in both these sports until he was 19, when he picked up BJJ. The decision to drop the more traditional martial arts (Karate and Kung Fu), came after he watched an MMA event in the town of Ibrabuera, Brazil, were all 3 of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu representatives easily won their respective fights without much effort.

He picked up BJJ at the same time he entered University to study Journalism, and his first Jiu Jitsu academy was Fabio Araujo’s place (who was a Brown Belt at the time under Carlson Gracie). Demian decided to move away from this gym after making the decision to dedicate his time to BJJ and possibly becoming a professional athlete (even though he continued his studies in Journalism).

He seeked Fabio Gurgel and his Alliance team academy in Sao Paulo’s Centre, with whom he stayed until graduating as Black Belt in a staggering 4 years and 7 months. Although this is an amazingly short period to reach black belt, Demian Maia was training BJJ 2 to 3 times per day and competing in all the main Tournaments (and winning), earning the World Title in the lower belts (purple and Brown) two years on a row. Before earning his Black belt, Demian Maia had his first MMA experience at the “Tormenta Del Ring” tournament in Venezuela (2001).

Demian was also at the center of a revolution that almost caused Alliance team’s demise when in 2002 him and a few others decided to fight in CBJJO’s (Confederacao de Jiu Jitsu Olimpico) World Cup, just a few days prior to the World Championships (CBJJ) against Fabio Gurgel and Jacare Romero’s instructions. The reason these fighters fought in the Cup was because CBJJO offered a prize money, which the World Championships didn’t and Demian along with the others (Rodrigo Comprido, Leo Vieira, Terere and “Rico” Vieira) believed a fighter should get paid for his hard work.
After the refusal to take Gurgel’s orders, the fighters were penalized and denied entrance the World Championships under the Alliance Banner as well as refused entrance in their gym for undetermined time. Being given these orders the fighters led by Leozinho Vieira decided to go ahead with their own team, and so “Brasa” was formed. Demian continued to fight for Brasa until he decided to pick MMA as his main activity, sport in which he has been very successful. Going through a series of minor shows throughout Brazil and even Finland, he joined the biggest MMA organization of all, the UFC were he had a fantastic run, winning several “Submission of the Night” bonus prizes. You can see him now in a UFC event near you.

If you are a fan of the Joe Rogan podcast you will know that Joe Rogan views Demian Maia as one of, if not THE best grappler in the UFC. Check out his match against Chael Sonnen to see how he did against another top American wrestler in MMA.Demian Maia is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, having been at the top of the game in both sports with titles such as World Cup Champion (BJJ – 2002 & 2003), ADCC Champion (submission wrestling – 2007) and two failed title attempts in the UFC’s middleweight (April 2010) and welterweight (July 2017) divisions.

Do Jiu-Jitsu And Are Interested In Striking Arts Like Boxing & Muay Thai? Here Are The Core Rules

 

 



 

While sparring, like anything else, people make mistakes. It’s Important to be aware of the mistakes you’re making, take the necessary steps to correct them and be patient with yourself and others when they’re learning. Here are the top ten mistakes people make while sparring:

10. Train Hard and Fight easy.

Not training hard is a commonly made mistake. Sparring is part of training and if you don’t do it enough as soon as you get in the ring you’ll be like a deer caught in head lights.

agmma

 

9. Don’t get backed into a corner.

While sparring its very important to move, especially when you’re getting blasted with a great combo. People often forget that moving in any direction is better than backing into a corner.

8. Moving in slow motion.

Unless you want your attacks to get blocked or caught, you should be launching them with speed and accuracy. You must do this without sparring at full power.

7. Come to terms with getting hit.

Not only is it going to happen, but learning to take a hit and keep going can be training in and of itself.

6. Take care of your injuries.

If you’re injured while training or sparring, make sure you seek the appropriate medical attention. Give your body time to heal.

mma_g_bverats_576

 

5. Look at your entire opponent.

If you’re looking at their leg waiting for that kick, you’re not going to see the punch coming straight at you.  Make sure you keep your focus on your entire opponent and not just one part of them.

4. Keep your hands up.

Everyone is guilty of this at some point or another, and yet it is one of the most important basics to remember.

3. When in doubt Jab it out.

Using your jab is an excellent way to set up another shot or combo.

2. BREATHE.

Not breathing properly, while sparring, can cause you to gas out, leaving you weak, tired, and out of breath. This will make the fight that much easier for your opponent as they don’t even have to hit you to wear you down.

basrutten_o2-trainer-in-mouth

 

1. Sparring at 1,000,000%

Sparring isn’t fighting, so if your’e doing it at full power you’re more than likely going to hurt your partner or even yourself.
