A black belt and master at Twitter too, Fabio Gurgel couldn’t resist breaking the good news about the 2013 ADCC himself.
“@MarioSperry, Big Zé, I just got invited to fight you in the ADCC! I couldn’t be more honored!!! Best regards!” posted the Allliance head honcho over his micro-blog account.
A superstar at the traditional No-Gi tournament, Zé Mario Sperry returned to the white carpets of the ADCC in 2011, when he faced Renzo Gracie at the Nottingham, England event and won by a score of 5 to 2.
Now Fabio Gurgel has shown his No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu prowess in MMA before, even in the UFC.
Another match-up confirmed for the show is the supermatch main event between superchamp Bráulio Estima and current absolute champion André Galvão.
Riding the wake of the news, GRACIEMAG.com brings you a simple yet efficient lesson from Fabio about an oft-used position in No-Gi.
