Nick from Gigolo's a BJJ world champion?

First off, love the show.

Second, just curious if anyone has ever heard of this guy? Claiming that he is a BJJ word champion is a pretty big order. Has anyone ever heard of him, or know anything about his BJJ?

In 2009, he took second place in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Championship and continues to train and compete.
Obvioiusly he placed 2nd a White or Blue. Doubtful at Puple.

What is this show he's on, never heard of it?

Anyone can claim a world championship etc if you spin it right.

Naga World Championships were held in Texas I believe but you really aren't a "world" champ in our sense of a Mundials champ. Same type thing as I went to some local fights and they were the "Insert MMA promotion here" Welterweight CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!!!!!

Yeah forget about this Nick Hawk guy. What I want to know is why this guy loves a show about male prostitutes?

I dont want to know about either the show, or why TS loves it.


What i think is a little concerning is this escort guy training and competing, and perhaps having an STD, or worse, HIV.

Nick Hawk

Hey guys, this is Nick Hawk AKA Nick Haas. I never reply to blogs, forums, ect. but the last thing I would want to do is to have someone thing I'm disrespecting a sport I'm so passionate about, have been studying for some time and have put many hard hours of training into. A friend told me about this forum. I took 2nd as a blue belt in the no-gi worlds in 2009, will hopefully be competing as a purple this year and recently won the no-gi advanced light heavy weight at Grappler's Quest in Las Vegas. As for STD's/HIV??? I'm a very small percentage of the population that does get tested. It's required by all cast members and clients. And it's a great show, check it out...
