JOÃO ASSIS IS SAMURAI JIU JITSU PRO ABSOLUTE WINNER.
Sometimes I like to imagine what it would be like to face one of these elite, wold class BJJ'ers. I've rolled with some great/well known grapplers/fighters over the years (e.g., Shinya Aoki, Eddie Bravo, Grabiel Vella, Satoru Kitaoka, Ricco Rodriguez) and it's always fun to check your level.
But, I have no interest in ever facing the likes of João Assis on the mat. The dude is just scary. João won his 93+ KG division yesterday at the Samurai Pro as well as the absolute division and the samurai sword that went along with it. Props. I believe Antonio Braga Neto took 2nd (absolute).
I changed my mind. I'd go a round or 2 with João. We'd just need to have buckets of ice and maybe a paramedic on hand for the injuries I'll be sustaining.
