This evening Nashville gets treated to a UFC show, and the card in store for the capital of the American state of Tennessee looks to promise some sweet submissions. Besides top-notch Royler Gracie and Vini Aieta black belt Fabricio “Morango” Camões’s return to the major leagues, the main event of the evening is a classic striker-versus-grappler matchup, with Jiu-Jitsu black belt Jim Miller testing his mettle against knockout artist Melvin Guillard.
To get his gentle art to flow, Jim hits the weights hard, as this video taken at our columnist Martin Rooney’s gym clearly demonstrates.
