    I've recently started watching his matches, and they guy is awesome. I don't hear much about him on the forums (its usally the same guys mentiones as always), but this guy beat Braulio Estima and had an awesome match against Roger (it ended the same as all of Rogers matches, mount to cross choke). Anybody else see many of his matches?

    I loved his finals match with Marcelo at Mundials (or was it Pan-ams?)

    He went for it at the end and Marcelo never backed down or tried to stall. It was probably the best 40 seconds of grappling I've seen.

    I'm a big fan of Calasans

    I am, as well. The guy's a beast. I enjoy watching guys that compliment their BJJ with Judo.

    He is kind of new to the scene. It's really been the last two years that people started noticing him. Been kind of like that for all of Atos at the black belt level.

    for sure, he had won the copa do mundo and taken 3rd in the mundials as a lightweight back in 2006. He seems to have flourished as a medio with the double win over braulio at the world pro gi, the absolute bronze last year and the medio silver this year.

    Atos team has really only been around a few years. We wanna grow and be the best. Ramon is awesome and I think he can make it happen.

    Yes, I'm a fan. And Atos teammate.

    At his new Atos school in San Diego. Yes, each class I get to roll with the guy. I am new and the school is new here in the US, so I have not trained with the rest of the team.

    I've only ever met the others when I have had to compete against them previously.

    I did a "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" kind of thing. And the religious stuff is nice too.
