    Good match. They were both hunting for those legs.

    Good match, lots of danger for both parts.
    It's amazing the difference between Joao Assis' level in pure grappling against his level in MMA.
    When i saw him fight in Mexico, i was excited and thought he'd grappleown his opponent (a no belt in BJJ, pure MMA)... he didn't make weight, gassed in two minutes, and got TKO'd. Then he got a few more loses.
    I hope he can do better thigns in MMA or just stick to grappling, at which he is really great and has a very agressive style.
