Justin Rader is bad, bad man.
The Lovato Jr. black belt has a game tailor-made for submission only rules – great wrestling, an endless gas tank, and the squeeze of an anaconda; tonight at Fight To Win Pro 63, Justin only needed two of those assets.
He hit a nice single leg early in the match to get the game moving on the ground. After working to pass Vernon’s guard for several minutes, Rader sensed an opening and threw himself on a diving guillotine. The immense strength of Rader’s choke was perceptible to anyone watching: Vernon’s legs writhed in discomfort as he wildly tried to buck Rader off before being forced to tap, giving Rader yet another F2W Pro victory.

Romulo Barral’s fearsome competition team at Gracie Barra Northridge just got a boost of fresh talent with the arrival of Fellipe Trovo.
The recently-promoted black belt, who is 23 and hails from near the city of Sao Paulo, arrived in California to train with Barral alongside noted competitors such as two-time World champion Gabriel Arges, famed submission hunter Edwin Najmi and the explosive Victor Silverio.
Promoted to black belt on Dec 9, Trovo recently represented the Ushirobira Jiu-Jitsu team. He is a 2017 Brazilian champion who took gold in the super-heavyweight division after submitting all of his opponents.
Romulo Barral responded his characteristic enthusiasm when talking about there young talent joining his team.
“I watch all the up-and-coming guys, but I have never been the guy who calls guys to my team, I don’t do that. When people want to come to my team, I’m the guy who says ‘Are you sure?’
“With Trovo, he respects his team but I talked to him and he told me his dreams. He is from a small town in Brazil, he doesn’t have a lot of opportunities. He respects his professor but he needs something more to grow.”
“I said he would be more than welcome and I would be happy to help him achieve his goals. He is a young kid and I think he has a lot of potential. I am looking forward to see what the future has for him.
“He just arrived, he has his first training session. I think he enjoyed a lot. Now he’s going to represent Gracie Barra Northridge and I’m glad to add his monster to the team.”

Fighter with weight in 65 kg wins his opponent whose weight is 100 kg! It’s hard to imagine for those ones who aren`t familiar with Brazilin Jiu-Jitsu! But it’s quite realistic! Seeing two fighters one of whom is little and thin and other looks like a rock in most cases audience will bank on the win of a large statute fighter. And they will be wrong. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a unique kind of fight because in this type of sport weaker fighter can win bigger opponent. The secret is that strength isn’t the main thing in this kind of sport. But you can ask what is the main thing in catch-style if the force isn`t important?! It doesn’t matter how many kilograms you are in weight and how strong your muscles are pumped! Techniques which is based on dynamism, timing and agility are the keys to success in jiu-jitsu. And fighters prove this fact again and again competing for winning medal.
Thus, Ukrainian fighter Roman Nepota (SC “Borets”/ ZR Team) defeated stronger opponent during the “German National IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship 2017”.
Roman Nepota vs Alexis Carbajo (absolute, German National IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship 2017, Berlin, Germany).
In London during the “British National Open” Roman Nepota faced with sizable opponent who was defeated by Roman despite the obvious difference in weight and height.
The history of jiu-jitsu contains many fights watching which it’s hard to believe it’s actually possible. The fight of John Oosthuysen who received a victory over 155 kg fighter can be a great example of it! The weight difference in 67 kg didn’t prevent smaller fighter to force his opponent to give away.
It is said that room makes for the youth. At the Newbreed Ultimate Challenge Championship 17- year-old Michael Arrieta defeated his opponent who was 154 kg, despite the fact that Michael’s weight was only 70 kg.
Probably big and portly fighters have already scared of their opponents with lower weight. During the “Grapplers Showdown 2013” the fighter with 69 kilograms win over his opponent who weighted 110 kg.
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu practice and numerous fights have proved that strength is not the main thing in this sport. This sport art is based on the principal that athlete with poor developed physical stature can successfully defend himself and won stronger opponent using proper techniques (submission and chokehold).
