Yan Cabral overcame Fabrício Werdum student Mathia Ribeiro in a Jiu-Jitsu supermatch held in Barcelona, last Saturday. The match took place at the Almogavers 3 MMA event. Yan, who is undefeated in seven MMA fights, never puts aside his gi or gi competition. The fighter, who now teaches in Barcelona, celebrates the great year. According to him, his only loss this season, in the ring or on the mat, came in the final of the European Jiu-Jitsu Championship, when he was overcome by Kron Gracie.
“I won! The score was 10 to 0 for me, with two guard passes and four points for having taken the back. I’m really happy with this win, since I beat a really tough athlete and finished the year perfectly. In 2009, I only lost in the final of the European,” celebrates the fighter, who uses the Gentle Art to achieve victory in the MMA ring.
“I had four MMA fights this year and got the finish in all four. I also won a bunch of tournaments here in Europe,” he tells GRACIEMAG.com.
