Tony vs Homer

2000 Grapplers Quest West

Open Weight Division Match

Tony DeSouza vs Homer Moore


Back in the day, pre Youtube, we had to wait for DVDs or VHS compilations to come out.  I remember getting a bootleg version of OTM’s Mat Burn and seeing this match.  I was lucky to find it on this site because it is no where to be found on Youtube.

Tony DeSouza is a wrestler, BJJ Black Belt under Nova Uniao, and MMA fighter (15-4) who is credited with creating the “Peruvian Necktie” submission (look it up…its nasty).  He also coined a fighting style called Cholitzu – a combination of wrestling and BJJ.  I think he resides and teaches in Peru.

Homer Moore is a wrestler and MMA fighter who compiled a decent record.  Not much else is known about him, except a little rumor that he killed a guy in 1999 (he was arrested and charged in 2014, but the matter was later dismissed).

I was always fascinated with this match because of the size difference and how quickly it ended.

Enjoy Tony vs Homer
