“I saw his [Nedkov’s] face. His expression changed. So I decided to try and take him down. I took the right opportunity. He hits hard; but I never quit.”

I like testing my Jiu-Jitsu under all rules—No-Gi; ADCC; no points, like at Metamoris… Everyone’s always asking me when I’m going to quit, so I’ll put this challenge out there: when someone passes my guard, then I’ll quit (laughs).”

“To me Leandro Lo is still the number one lightweight in the world. I feel his game is heavily dependent on [gi] grips; that’s why I managed to beat him.”

“It’s great to compete without stopping to look at the scoreboard. That’s the idea behind Jiu-Jitsu—to think only about making the opponent quit, to tap him out. I hate competing against those guys who go in there to win by advantages, or hang on to one position just so they can sweep at the end. That makes for ugly Jiu-Jitsu.”

Marcus Bochecha


“Strikeforce, which airs on Showtime, will be running its last event in January before folding up shop for good.”
