[Based on a press release.]

Pablo Mantovani won another BJJ match last weekend in San Diego, California. The black belt from Atos BJJ went straight to submit Andre Pontes with a kneebar at Fight to Win 117. The champ spoke about on how his pre-fight mental workout was determinant to get the victory.

“I always try to prepare myself mentally for the fight and imagine how every situation will play out for me and those variations. I always think on ways that I could get the victory, via submission or points. It always depends on my strategy for the fight. I always do that when I’m preparing before the event. I always pay a lot of attention on my pre-fight workout, one that could make me sweat a lot to avoid being surprised by my opponent in the fight. When I do align all that, I’m sure that I’m ready. Always follow my plan.”

He also explained how got the kneebar on Andre after using the berimbolo and attacking the feet, one of his best moves.

“Having the control of the leg of my opponent was the first part to help me in the position, because when I attack I have to make him give me something. On that occasion I was attack his back and his feet and he was defending, so we rolled and I was able to get the leg lock. I’ve been working those positions a lot lately.”

Pablo also spoke about his vision about the trash talking game in jiu-jitsu. He believes that his way to promote the fights isn’t the right one.

“I don’t believe that’s the way to do it. I don’t see that as the example that I want to give to my kids and to the next generation of fighters. Respect is good and I like it. There are some people that disagree with my vision, and by the end of the story they’re going to be remembered as bad examples. If you look at the best athletes in the world they don’t use that strategy. I’ve never seen a guy like Cristiano Ronaldo talking shit about his opponents, neither did Messi and Michael Phelps. Or Usain Bolt, Mendes Bros, Miyao Bros and Roger Gracie. Let’s be honest: who uses that kind of strategy is someone that doesn’t know how to live without a spotlight or getting attention. But I do respect all the fighters and every choice that they make in their lives and careers.”
