If in the UFC Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares hasn’t been having the best of time, with his concussive encounter with Hector Lombard last Friday, in Jiu-Jitsu the ace from BTT is still beloved by fans.
To see why, all you need to do is take a look at ADCC 2001 in Nottingham, England. It was there that Toquinho used his potent takedowns and painful lower-body holds to make it to the under-88 kg final.
At the other end of the bracket, though, was a well-trained André Galvão, who didn’t falter in defense and managed to outpoint Palhares in winning the title he had come up short in capturing on two prior occasions. And next Galvão would go on to win the absolute to boot.
Check out the riveting match between the former Strikeforce fighter and the UFC ace. Enjoy your studies.
