Last Saturday Jiu-Jitsu black belt Wilson Reis saw action at Bellator 37 in Oklahoma, and his grappling experience came in handy.
Reis put away Zac George at 2:09 min of combat using a rear-naked choke. The other Brazilian on the card, Patrício “Pitbull” Freire also had a good showing, knocking out Georgi Karakhanyan at 0.26 minutes into the second round. Now both are still afloat in the promotion’s featherweight GP.
