Lotus Club and Alliance team member Laercio Fernandes is one of the top competitors competing in the IBJJ Pro League tomorrow, December 8. In this video he welcomes you to watch the event, for it will be a great day for Jiu-Jitsu.
If you don’t know much about Laercio, he finished second at the 2012 World Championships after a tough match against Guilherme Mendes in the finals that was left to a referee decision.
The biggest win of his blooming career that sparked the most interest in this 31-year-old Irvine, CA resident, was his 2010 match with Caio Terra whom he defeated by points at the 2010 American Nationals. What was seen as an upset then, helped give rise to Laercio’s recognition however he still manages to slide under the radar despite numerous places on the podium since then.
When he’s not teaching and training in Irvine, he heads over to GMA member Cobrinha BJJ in Los Angeles, making the trek in order to train with the 9x world champion Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles Maciel.
