Two of the greatest grapplers of all time meet again for a rematch! The first was a submission only event that lasted twenty minutes. Although Buchecha nearly landed an armbar toward the end of the bout, it still ended in a draw.
This was four years ago.
Finally we get to see the rematch of Roger Gracie (arguably the greatest grappler of all time) vs Marcus Almeida “Buchecha” (widely considered to be the greatest grappler of this current time). I won’t spoil it for you. Check out the action below!!

Heralding his return to the octagon against Daniel Cormier, Jon Jones has earned his BJJ Blue Belt. I say earned because it is not infrequent to hear of UFC fighters being promoted to black belt with doing little, to no training in the gi.
Jon Jones will face DC at UFC 214 July 29th in Anaheim, California. Daniel Cormier has the belt but never beat Jon. Jon wants to get his belt back.
Congratulations on earning your blue belt Jon! Oss!
Dillon Danis has some choice words for one of Garry “The Lion Killer” Tonon’s coaches ahead of their bout at Polaris 5. August 19th, London.
Dillon started making a name for himself as a brown belt under Marcelo Garcia. Soon after getting his black belt he became friends with Conor McGregor. The two became friends and now Dillon is Conor’s BJJ coach.
The name calling banter between Dillon Danis and Garry Tonon has been entertaining. I think Garry started it all off by calling Dillon, “Dillon D-anus”.
Sounds like it should be a fun night! Last remaining tickets available at www.polaris-pro.org do not miss it!
Gegard Mousasi’s impressive win over former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman marked the final obligation on his UFC contract. Now with his contract fulfilled, Mousasi has taken a surprising turn.
Despite the fact that Mousasi holds the number-four spot in the UFC middleweight rankings, the promotion was apparently unprepared to pay him what he felt he was worth. According to reports from Chamatkar Sandhu and Kimura Crew, Mousasi and the UFC have failed to agree on the terms of a new contract, and the Iranian-Dutchman will now be migrating to Bellator MMA.
I’m hearing from a reliable source that Gegard Mousasi has signed with Bellator MMA. It’s one source but I’m trying to get confirmation now.
He is from Myitkyina, Myanmar. He trains in Maryland. He is now the ONE FC Middleweight Champion of the world.

“My dream is to become a world champion. Being a world champion for my country, which never had a world champion at that level. It’s going to be humongous. It’s going to be huge for my career and for my legacy.”
“It’s kind of sad, because a lot of people don’t know where Myanmar is. My nickname actually came from a promoter in the mid-west, he asked from where I was from and I said, ‘I’m from Myanmar’ he was like ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about. Where is that country?’ I said, ‘Oh, you know, like where the Burmese pythons are from’ Then he gave me that nickname, Burmese Python, and it stuck.”
After winning the fight in the cage Aung had this to say; “I cannot do this without God, I cannot do this without my teammates, I cannot do this without you, Myanmar,” Sang said in his post-fight interview. “I’m not talented, I’m not good, I’m not fast. With you I have courage and strength to win a world title. Myanmar, how does that sound? You have a world champion. Thank you all for your love and support. I will never quit, I will keep fighting and I will take on any challenger.”
The Gracie Diet was created by Carlos Gracie, the patriarch of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the Gracie Family.
The goal was to assure the family members would never be sick or feeling unwell before a fight. This eating regimen focused on food combinations has the objective to prevent blood acidity and fermentation that could be caused by unhealthy chemical reactions of food within the body. This procedure may hamper the digestive process which is the most energy consuming stage in the body.
According to Carlos, keeping the acidity or the alkalinity (pH levels) of the blood is crucial in the digestive process because pH levels of food should be kept neutral for maximum transformation of the food. He added that some food combinations of food kept the pH levels in the blood neutral while others made it acidic or alkaline. The pH imbalance in food may cause several illnesses like hardening of the arteries, osteoporosis, overload of the digestive system organs and weaken the body immune system.
The diet is composed of several food tables divided in the following groups:
