Legendary Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Robert Drysdale Signs With UFC, Debuts at UFC 163

Huge news out of Las Vegas today, as it has been announced that legendary BJJ instructor turned MMA fighter Robert Drysdale has signed with the UFC and will make his promotional debut against Ednaldo Oliveira at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Pettis.

A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt who holds over 90 tournament titles to his credit — including an ADCC Absolute Division championship in 2007, video here – Drysdale has tutored such UFC veterans as Forrest Griffin and Dan Hardy in the art of ground fighting (or as Bob Arum calls it “homosexual skinhead rolling-about“). Since making the transition from the mat to the cage in 2010, Drysdale has submitted six straight opponents, such as TUF 3‘s Mike Nickels and Bellator vet D.J. Linderman (a.k.a the guy who Anthony Johnson planked at WSOF 1), inside the first round.

For his big debut, Drysdale will face Brazilian slugger Ednaldo Oliveira, who hasn’t competed in the UFC since being strangled out in Gabriel Gonzaga’s first post-unretirement UFC bout at UFC 142. Prior to his own debut, however, “Lula Molusco” — which if my Portuguese is correct means “Lady Mollusk” — was also undefeated, collecting 8 TKO’s in 12 contests.

Featuring a light heavyweight sure-to-be…uh…barnraiser? (lunker?) between Lyoto Machida and Phil Davis as well as the return of Thales Leites (please, CONTAIN YOUR EXCITEMENT), UFC 163 goes down on August 3rd at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

Clearly, garcia is a tough motherfucker but damn that is a lot of size to give up.

@ Thumblaster

Clearly you need to know who Marcello Garcia is. Go youtube some of his videos. He's WELL versed in destroying much larger opponents. It was a huge victory to beat Garcia, but unlikely Drysdale could ever do it again.

@m-shack I see you too are fluent in genius.
I would hope drysdale got his hand raised in that fight pictured, he looks like he's got a 12" height advantage and about 100 lbs. on that kid. He should'nt be celebrating he should be arrested.

just picture Sloth from,"The Goonies" clapping his hands together with joy and giggling like a school girl while staring at a keyboard, and that was my reaction to this outstanding news.
