DRACULINO WON!!! They took my good camera...but recorded with another one. Post tonight
war bjj! how did he win???
Awesome! How did the fight go down? Congrats to him!
Romulo just posted that on his tweet as well. PR, are you there with Romulo, Gordo and the other guys?
You can read about it on the play by play. Link on front page of Sherdog.
Sounds like Long didnt want any part of the ground, and was very tentitive.
Cool, can't wait to see the video!
spoiler on the title would have been considerate...
I read a play-by-play in the other thread, sounds like Drac dominated. It's nice to see a good old fashioned BJJ guy who also has great takedowns and uses them in MMA.
In this case...the fight was not televised anyways.
ah, then carry on...
yeah, Romulo Barral and Samuel Braga are sitting right here next to me. We all were going crazy!!
Heres the recap from MMA Fighting:
Vinicius Magalhaes vs. Rocky Long
Round 1: Magalhaes (no, not the one from "The Ulitmate Fighter") shoots for a takedown and is stuffed by Long. He quickly falls to his back and looks for a heel hook on Long, and it seems close. Long keeps rolling and eventually frees himself, but he can't quite get away from Magalhaes suffocating grappling attack. Magalhaes has Long in a front head lock against the cage, with Long down on one knee. Magalhaes appears to land two very illegal knees to the head, but the referee doesn't even blink. Interesting. MMA Fighting scores the round 10-9 for Magalhaes.
Round 2: The two fighters spend the first minute or so of the round staring at one another, and the crowd makes it quite plain that they didn't come here to see that kind of nonsense. Neither man seems like he's going to be goaded into actually hitting the other man, however, so the staring contest continues for much of the round. Magalhaes moves in and presses Long against the cage, working out of the clinch, but without doing much damage. The crowd is in full boo-mode to end the round. MMA Fighting scores if 10-10. Nobody did anything.
Round 3: Magalhaes in a little more active to start the round, jumping in with a wild hook that doesn't come close to landing. Long fires back and they move to the mat, with Magalhaes slipping to Long's back in a nifty little move. Long defends against the rear naked choke well, but can't seem to get Magalhaes off his back. Magalhaes thinks about transitioning to the armbar, but doesn't seem to want to give up the position. The round ends with Magalhaes still on Long's back, perhaps landing some punches to the back of Long's head, but again the referee doesn't seem interested in doing much about it.
Not to name drop or anything
Did you expect anything less from him lol?
Draculino's fight and Galvao's fight with Macaco should have been televised...
Lol he asked.
Separate names with a comma.
