“These days you can’t make a living in Jiu-Jitsu on prize and sponsorship money alone. You have to have an academy or teach seminars, and that’s why it’s so tough being a professional athlete. The IBJJ Pro League prize money is a good initiative, and it has to be just the beginning.”

“Just having the opportunity to train with Rodrigo, Rogério and Pezão was a major pleasure as it is. But besides them there are other good guys to train with, which has been great for me. If I can take Antonio Pezão down, for example, I’m in good shape for my fight at Strikeforce.”

“Jiu-Jitsu to me is like life: you learn from your mistakes, just like in life.”

“André Galvão and I have the same style; we go on the attack. Either of us could have won it.”
