A BJJ star in ascension in MMA, Rodolfo Vieira had another bout this Saturday. At ACB 88 in Australia, Rodolfo faced Jacob Holyman-Tague in a middleweight match and nearly saw his undefeated record go down the tubes right away.
Even being a strong ground player, Holyman-Tague didn’t want to accept a jiu-jitsu confrontation. Before taking the fight to the ground, Rodolfo invested in striking. But as he attempted a leg attack, the Brazilian got dealt a powerful knee strike. An unwavering Rodolfo continued in his mission, though — he made a few attempts before stabilizing his opponent on the ground, and worked until reaching the back and finishing via rear naked choke.
In this video, you can watch the complete fight that brought Rodolfo’s MMA record to three submissions plus one knockout.
