JOE MULLINGS INTERVIEWS BJJ BLACKBELT MARCUS "BUCHECHA" ALMEIDA.

Original Photo: Christian Tesoro, Atleticas de Jiu-Jitsu

Buchecha means "cheeks" in Portuguese. But why on earth would Marcus be given the nick name cheeks? Come on people, just look at that smile.

For those of you who don't know, and have been locked away watching Real Houswives of Miami, Buchecha is a 21 year old jiu jitsu phenom. In the past year Buchecha has competed in every major tournament and has been tearing up the mats. Buchecha fights out of the Armory in Jupiter, Florida which is a breeding ground for amazingness. (It's also home to leg lock specialist, Cavaca.)

Check out Joe Mullings' interview with Mr. Cheeks himself, Marcus Buchecha Almeida.

  1. Hey guys. I'm glad you liked my photo of Buchecha. Perhaps you ran across it online as I have posted it on Facebook and even my own site. I'm cool with you using it in your publications, however please ask for my permission in advance next time. We can discuss credit and compensation...
