First off, the tournament needs to shorten its name to something like the World Pro or even the WPJJ or something. Second, and more importantly, thanks to the bros at TXMMA.com, we get tons of great video content of Raphael Lovato Jr. doing his thing (I really wanted to say "thang," but it just sounds lame when I do it).
If you haven't yet had a chance to peruse these, check out all of RLJ's matches below. DSTRYR/SG has always been a big supporter of Lovato Jr. His lineage from Xande and Saulo Ribeiero is evident in his disciplined, methodical and cerebral style. It's not flashy, but it's exceedingly effective and definitely something to aspire to for all grapplers. He's on a roll, having won his 2nd consecutive No-Gi World title only a few weeks ago.
We must give huge props to TXMMA.com (Mike Calimbas) for its coverage of this event. We're sick of hearing ourselves whine and complain that our sport's major events gets lousy coverage (or none at all) and that our athletes get little media attention. Check out the library of video content for this event alone here and the photos here. We need a lot more of this.
