An explosive card is on tap for UFC 132 next Saturday in Las Vegas. And that extends to the undercard as well. For lovers of good Jiu-Jitsu there’s one in particular drawing attention. Black belts Rafael dos Anjos and George Sotiropoulos will be across the octagon from each other.
In a statement recently published in GRACIEMAG, UFC president Dana White said Sotiropoulos has one of the best ground games in the organization today. Brought up under the wing of Roberto Gordo, an expert on the subject, dos Anjos isn’t far behind.
In the video below, Rafael works on his striking but guarantees he didn’t slack on his ground training. To prove it, he teaches some tricks to the hook sweep exclusively for GRACIEMAG.com readers.
