Eduardo Telles has done it all, or almost.
He was the co-founder of the legendary TT Jiu-Jitsu with Fernando Tererê, back in the 00’s, in Brazil.
He has also ventured himself in MMA, with 7 fights and a 5-2 record.
Telles is better known for his strange personal style of Jiu-Jitsu.
Inventor of the turtle and the octopus guards, Telles is a master of surprising his opponents with unexpected positions and submissions.
A Pan champion in 2007 (heavyweight), Telles more recently conquered his first ever world championship as a black belt in the adult division.
In a thrilling final match against young gun Felipe Pena, Telles got a last-second back taking to score 6 x 2 and become the 2013 World no-Gi medium-heavy champion.
In the 2013 BJJ Pro League, Telles will once again display his unusual moves and be a strong contender for the super-heavy/ultra-heavy gold and $5,000 prize.
