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.
