If you’ve ever wondered how 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu founder Eddie Bravo would do against a UFC fighter on the mats, your wait is over.
The video above should quell a few of the naysayers who hypothesize that Eddie’s guard-centric style is an ineffective one. He makes Takeya Mizugaki look like a blue belt during the six-minute roll and that’s no small feat considering the UFC bantamweight has only been submitted once in 23 fights.
Bravo uses his monkey-like legs as effectively as any grappler when it comes to stifling his opponent’s offense and remaining out of harm’s way, which negates the theory that the Rubber Guard doesn’t work in MMA when you introduce striking into the mix.
Bravo’s bottom game is a thing of beauty and from what I hear, very difficult to defend against.
