Mestre do Combate, a fledgling MMA promotion headed by Rickson Gracie, was held for the first time, last night at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s Vivo Rio arena. And the biggest star of the event was Jiu-Jitsu—with the outcome of six of the eight fights determined on the ground.

In the main event of the evening, Vitor Miranda, a Thai boxing specialist from Team Nogueira, took on Elton Monstro. Vitor’s experience shone through, as he landed solid kicks and punches while pushing the pace the entire truncated duration of the fight.

Ultimately, he ended up teaching a lesson in Jiu-Jitsu: at minute 1:05 Vitor catches hold of Elton and trips him down. At minute 2:21 Vitor transitions from knee-on-belly to mount and wraps up with an arm-and-neck choke.
