Whether in an MMA fight or real conflict situation, it’s not uncommon for Jiu-Jitsu practitioners to find themselves on bottom, getting wailed on by an aggressor.
It’s time to get the leg game going, using the guard not just to get the opponent away, but to dominate him.
That’s the lesson taught by Nova União black belt Renê Nazaré, a fighter the card for Bellator 77, today in Pennsylvania, USA.
Take note of how Renê uses his hips and controls the arm in finishing his opponent, whether via triangle or omoplata.
Today the Brazilian will be taking on Ricardo Tirloni, and he’s confident despite a run of poor results.
“Nobody has knocked me out. Nobody has finished me. I lost to the judges, which I don’t see as a loss, because it’s a question of points and opinion,” Renê told the MMAJunkie.com website. “In my last fight I had three even rounds with Thiago Michel, and Ricardo was knocked out with one punch at the start of his fight. That’s why I think he doesn’t have much of a chin. If I can put together a good combination and land one, he’s going to fall again,” asserted the Rio de Janeiro native.
In the other GP fights, former UFC fighter Rich Clementi takes on Alexander Tiger Sarnavskiy and Thai boxing champion Cosmo Alexandre will face off with Mike Bannon.
