Vinny vs Fabricio

2011 ADCC World Championships

+99 kg Championship Final

Nottingham, England

Vinny Magalhaes vs Fabricio Werdum

Fabricio has been showcased here on a few occasions, so lets introduce Vinny “Pezao” (big foot) Magalhaes.

Vinny is most notable for No Gi competitions and appearances in UFC and M-1 Global.   I have seen him successfully execute more than a few flying arm bars, which for a super heavy weight, is pretty impressive. He is also well versed in the leg lock game, before it became a thing.   His lone championship is the referenced match against Fabricio, winning the +99kg class of the 2011 ADCC championship.

This clip captures the most intense 3 minutes of their match.  You will wince once or twice as you see both of them struggle.  I am not sure how long the full match lasted, but Vinny prevailed on points which means it was a minimum 20 minutes.  So picture having to endure what he went through and still come out on top.  Just goes to show, if you want something that bad, you have to sacrifice something.

Jacare vs Fabricio

2004 CBJJO World Cup

Absolute Semi-Final

Salvador Bahia, Brazil

Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs Fabricio Werdum

I have introduced Jacare and Fabricio to all of you before on MFM so I will not regurgitate their impressive curriculum vitae.

What I will state from watching Jacare in Gi and No Gi events, is the following:

  1. Jacare has the best takedowns in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
  2. Jacare is the best athlete in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

After viewing this clip, you may come to the same conclusion, especially at about 2 minutes in.

Enjoy Jacare vs Fabricio

ps..Jacare is about 185 lbs…Fabricio is 230’ish
