WATCH ANOTHER WORLD CLASS BATTLE FROM 2011 EUROPEANS: MALFACINE v. FARIA.

Constantly looking for video of the matches featuring elite grapplers in IBJJF competitions has become somewhat of a hobby for us.  Unfortunately, it's kind of like looking for true love at a bar in Hollywood at 1:00 AM or applying to junior college and/or for parole.  Usually fruitless and often disappointing.  Thank god we have jiu jitz.

There's no real "coverage" per se when it comes to these kinds of events and that is certainly sad.  We are going to get there, but it's clearly going to take some time.  For now, it's catch-as-catch-can (no pun intended) and we'll take whatever random videos we can get.  Fortunately for us, someone did a decent job shooting the light feather black belt final of the 2011 European Open. 

Check it below.  Honestly, it's not my favorite brand of BJJ (50/50 guard, butt scooting, points/advantage style), but Bruno Malfacine is one of the best in the world at this game and he was clearly challenged by newcomer and wearer of the deep fauxhawk, Ary Faria.
