    I know it's just sparring, but it's nice to see Garcia human (in all the 4 vids :D)

    i have a feeling that we are looking at a private, or somthing.

    there is no way Gurgel could pull off somthing that only an elite few have managed.

    I think marcelo was showing the ol man some respect ,not really trying to take it to him. Though Fabio is doing a good job of putting some mass amounts of shoulder/chest pressure on marcelo's head for that mount.

    LMAO- I love how people take stuff like this so seriously. Who cares if its a warm-up roll, a mount drill or live sparring? EVERYONE should tap when learning. You think Marcelo never taps in training?
