    Just wanted to find out what people thought of him and his skills in Brazillian Jiujitsu. If you may not know he just moved to Guam about a year or two ago. He seems to be almost given godlike status here in the local Brazillian jiujitsu and submission grappling circuit. Hope I could get some good feedback on his skills.

    My BB instructor thinks highly of him and that is good enough for me.

    Damn, I remember him going to Cali and representing the Lloyd Irvin brand on the west coast but how the hell did he end up in Guam and why?

    He is the head instructor for the purebred/loyd irvin gym in Guam. He likes the island lifestyle. I hear he is also an avid surfer.

    ah, ok. I think I do remember Pablo and Andre, but it was at the same time as one of Leozhino's matches, which I was more interested in. I think he was fighting Rani Yayha in the finals at that time, but it could have been during his match before that.

    He is elite level as said. He took a close decision over Renzo at ADCC last year, and subbed Saulo with a toehold I think. The man's got skills.
