Some grappling aces saw action in No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu matches at the UFC Fan Expo this weekend in Las Vegas.
Among the standouts, three-time world champion Fredson Paixão, now a fighter for the WEC, submitted Japan’s Caol Uno. After notching 4 to 2 on the scorecards, the black belt transitioned from omoplata to armbar and brought the match to a close.
In other bouts, WEC fighter Shane Roller tapped out the UFC’s Takanori Gomi. After dominating the action on the ground and with takedowns, Roller finished up with a rear-naked choke. Now Jeff Glover overcame the WEC’s Javier Velazquez on points.
