On his first outing as a professional MMA fighter, Jiu-Jitsu ace Bráulio “Carcará” Estima had his work cut out for him, at Titan FC 24 in Kansas City yesterday.
The Jiu-Jitsu professor at Gracie Barra Birmingham, England, started out in the welterweight tilt taking a major right to the jawline.
The blow switched Bráulio to all systems go, as he closed the distance and took the game Chris Holland to the ground, where he set about using what he’s been studying for the last 20 years.
Just 3:21 minutes into the bout, Carcará sunk an arm-and-neck choke so snug that Holland didn’t have enough time to tap and passed out cold.
Bring on the next challenge.
