Bizarro World Video of the Day: The Axe Murderer Grapples, No one Gets Stomped

Sure, we know that Wanderlei Silva is a high level BJJ black belt, but his last submission win was a decade ago. When Wandy tapped out Bob Schrijber in the opening round of the 2000 Pride Grand Prix with an RNC, Jon Jones was snitching on playground kids for doling out Pixy Stix, and Rory MacDonald was still watching SpongeBob.

Actually, some of us are still watching SpongeBob, so perhaps that wasn’t a great illustration. Whatever.

Point is, Wanderlei’s submission game is talked about, but you never expect to see him wrap someone up in his guard. It’s sort of like being told that Paris Hilton has a sister who is both intelligent and uninterested in chasing fame. You could believe it, but you really want to see some proof to make sure.

Anywho, check out this video of everyone’s favorite fighter and some other dude practicing some arcane martial art known as “Brazilian Jui Jitsu” in what appear to be pajamas.

@Horror Fighter - I don't think so, at least at Black Belt level. As long as they're not reaping the knee, it should be okay. Of course, if I was there and saw Wandy trying that, I'd yell out "Pride Rules" and see if Vitor started kicking him in the head.

Wandys got leg locks? That is actually kind of refreshing. Other than PaulHarris most brazillians seem averse to lower body submissions. They are more Japanese and Western techniques. If he snatches a leg against Leban(who has notoriously poor sub defense)he would be gauaranteed a bonus.
And for everyone saying the music is ghey...that is standard fare in every jitz academy I have traind at not run by a White Boy.

In the screencap for that video above, Wandy is definitely making eye contact.
