Jiu-Jitsu black belt Caio Magalhães should be back in MMA’s most famous cage in the month of November. Training in the Northeast Brazilian city of Fortaleza, the fighter hasn’t forgotten about his past as a gentle-art competitor and has targeted the Abu Dhabi WPJJC tryouts coming up September 15 and 16 in the city of Natal.
“I dream of competing in Abu Dhabi. I managed to qualify this year, but my UFC commitments kept me from participating,” he recalled. “But this time I think it’ll happen. I’m going to secure my spot right away,” he asserted.
Always with an eye to gentle-art studies, the UFC middleweight demonstrated a position exclusively for GRACIEMAG.com.
In the instructional, Caio shows how to fool the opponent when passing guard in No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu. Notice how he removes his opponent’s underhook, grabs his head and puts a hand on his biceps to then land on the side and fake a kneebar attack. From there, he keeps the hook in place and spins, sitting and grabbing the hip, to next take the back.
