On the star-studded card for the inaugural World Series of Fighting (WSF), an event broadcast live from Las Vegas, Nevada, across the USA on NBC last weekend, the black belt Gesias “JZ” Cavalcante stole the show with his Jiu-Jitsu.
JZ needed just over a minute to tap out TJ O’Brien with a double heelhook that put pressure on the knee and foot at once. The win marks the Brazilian’s 17th career victory.
Another major standout on the evening was former UFC fighter Anthony Johnson, whose swift knockout of DJ Linderman even earned him praise from his ex-boss Dana White.
