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.

  1. I've had the pleasure of meeting him a few times over at Werdums. Guys a beast and ace, not to mention a class act.
