Wellington Dias, widely known as Megaton, is celebrating another birthday today.
The only person to have competed in all editions of the World championship as a black belt, Mega is a living legend of the gentle art.
Highly skilled and owner of some trademark moves, like the helicopter sweep, Megaton has also made another great contribution to Jiu-Jitsu: his daughter Mackenzie Dern, one of the most talented female athletes in the game.
To celebrate his birthday, we have found this historic videos from 1997, where Megaton fights Mario Aiello and Fabio Santos at the Rickson Gracie Cup.
Watch and enjoy Megaton’s technique.
