    That was very entertaining. Thanks for posting. The heel hook part was classic.

    "You can't heel-hook me, I'm a white belt!" I can't tell you how many times I've heard that before in no-gi training. Haha :icon_chee

    I see "The Tooth" grappling with Rafa sometimes on Mendesbro.com training site.

    Funny ass video!

    EDIT: ouch, that flying scissors takedown looked like it almost tweaked the knee pretty good!

    Sure. Not sure if you'll be able to see them if you're not signed up though?

    I could've sworn Nick the Tooth was a blue belt now? I thought I saw a pic of him on the podium at the no-gi worlds with a blue rash guard on? And my buddy out at AOJJ I also thought told me he's a blue belt.

    every bluebelt in the world looks pretty damn bad when they roll with someone the caliber of joe lauzon. lauzon may not be ranked, but i'd say he's at blackbelt level.

    You dont put white belts in heel hooks. Because the damage is not just in your control, but in theirs. They roll the wrong way and bye bye mr knee. Not necessary for just a fun exhibition match.

    Granted he didn't crank on it...but still.
