The owner of one of the finest Jiu-Jitsu guards at the turn of the century, the black belt Leonardo Santos (11w, 3l) added another superb win to his MMA record last Friday in Jordan at the latest Cage Warriors Fight Night event.

The Jiu-Jitsu professor from team Nova União showed he’s still got the pressure from top position, sticking a shoulder in the face of Mark “Boots” Host (10w, 4l) until mounting and dismounting with a fight-ending arm-and-neck choke in place.

Watch how he did it:
