ADCC 2011: Jacare vs. Estima

It's time for today's main event, a fight between last ADCC's super-fight champion Ronaldo Souza against last ADCC's absolute champion Braulio Estima.

Jacare is coming off that tough loss to Luke Rockhold in Strikeforce but opted to continue on with his ADCC obligation to fight hometown hero Braulio Estima.

It's on.  Some early grip fighting with Braulio working towards a collar tie.  Both fighters prodding each other with small tie ups.  Braulio went for an arm drag and turned it into a single leg, he got Jacare down for a short time but Jacare was able to scramble back to the feet.  We're back to the collar ties now as both men search for some sort of opening.

ADCC 2011 Under 66kg Results: Robson Moura, Rafael Mendes, Ryan Hall And More

The under 66kg weight class is up now:

Our first match is Rafael Mendes and Bruno Frazatto (training partners with each other).  We're in 50/50 guard and we're seeing constant footlock attacks from both competitors, Rafael looking to be slightly more aggressive with the attacks.  Continually going for legs are both guys but Rafael has now secured back control after a scramble.  Rafael has won on points after the back control points were given to him.

Justin Radar up against Timo-Juhani Hiryikangas now, and we'll be calling Timo "T-Bone" from here on out.  Justin Radar has won.

First Lister has gone for an omoplata and then a triangle, both unsuccessful. Lister has given up his back but remains in turtle guard as Ferrari tries to figure out an offense against Lister but eventually both have ended up back on the feet. Lister after a takedown has started up an armlock and looks close to finishing Ferrari, Ferrari survives and Dean Lister wins by points.

Rousimar Palhares slammed Dan Schon and then transfers to a heel hook to finish the match.

I could be wrong and maybe a high level pro will come on here and correct me but I don't think that he lost due to a lack of training JJ..He trains hardcore in a bunch of areas now, but he is consistently training with top talent and although he probably trains his stand up a lot, you know he still gets tons of mat time. If anything I would say the reason he lost was still beat from the match against rochhold. And if you are saying that for Jacare, then the same has to go for Werdum. And I would say that he still has a very high chance of winning his division...
