Living in Canada for a year and ten months, Jorge Britto saw MMA action last weekend in Canada defending the belt under 73kg division belt of the CCF event. The Royler Gracie and Saulo Ribeiro black belt needed only 37 seconds to knock out Josh Kryejto after a splendid right hook followed by strikes from the mount brought the fight to a close.
“It couldn’t have been better! Let me thank the Claudinho Coelho, Gabriel Ribeiro and his team Nobre Arte / Delfim. And the guys at Gracie Tijuca, my coach and training partner Mauricio Veio and everyone who came over from Toronto BJJ and Evolucao Thai,” said a grateful Jorge, who did part of his preparations when he was in Rio de Janeiro at the start of the year.
On the coming 20th, Jorge Britto enters the scene yet again, this time at the W-1 event in Montreal, against the USA’s Jonathan Mix. Besides fighting over there, Britto will lead his Jiu-Jitsu team into battle at the Abu Dhabi Trials in the Canadian city.
“We have over 15 athletes and they are very well trained; I expect great results,” says the indefatigable fighter, who will host the Ontario Jiu Jitsu Cup on the 24th and 25th of April. “Thank God I’m so busy, so much work to be done,” he concludes.
