I just came across this on Instagram and it made me sad.  I guess he's been diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer.  I've never met the guy but always admired his BJJ.  Anyway, here's the link to the gofundme that's going around. Fuck cancer.

That sucks. Javi really inspired me to train wrestling with my Jiu Jitsu. If you can get your hands on Vol1. of his "Mastering Grappling" from 2005 it's still one of the best instructionals for submission-aware takedowns.

Here he is fighting three rounds on the ground against a world class blackbelt when his knee was so fucked he could barely stand.
