Saturday, July 23rd, was another MMA victory for GMA member Carlos Lemos.
The leader of Gracie Barra Countryside again demonstrated not only his Jiu-Jitsu but primarily his striking at Total Fight Challenge 17.
With a change of opponent at the last minute, Carlos was instead paired up with Mike Philips, a very tough opponent from Team No Ego with a wrestling and kickboxing background.
Whereas his last fight at TFC could be said to be utter domination, this fight was an all-out war, and both combatants have every right to be proud of their performances.
In fact, several experienced fighters and fans both mentioned that the match was worthy of being shown in the UFC or WEC.
It ended with Professor Lemos engaging an armbar from the top mount, he had the arm extended and was working on adjusting the wrist to the proper angle when the third round ended, earning him a unanimous decision for the win.
