    It was for the 3rd place. An advantage of 30 kg in Xande's favor . Marcelo escaped in a blitz the mount, swept him with a double, broke twice his guard, passed to take the back and finished with the rear choke. Now, this is what I call JJ! And Xande is no Ricco...

    Good match indeed. I love Machado vs Arona...
     
  4. Marcelo Garcia is probably one of the greatest examples of how Jiu Jitsu can be used to defeat anyone no matter how big or small. Him vs. Ricco was freakin poetic justice, and the crowd went buck wild. Awesome. I really wish we did better against Jacare, I want to see a rematch. But yeah, next to see hopefully is Roger Gracie vs. Marcelo Garcia, that would be some shit.

    30 kg is 70 lbs. Marcelo is 170lbs. Xande is around 210 lbs. more like 15 KG. It's a 30 KG advantage for Ricco when they fought.

    Trigg didn't have proper time to cut weight so he fought in his natural weight class. I've met Marcelinho personally and I'd say he's around 165 lbs.
     
  14. You ever roll with him? Does he have a green aura around him like in my dreams? I mean...*ahem!* Cool, yes, meeting him is cool. Wish I could, in a manly way of course.

    The graphic display says Marcelo 65 kg, Xande 95 kg, but they must be wrong regarding Marcelo' weight. He fought in the 66 to 76 weight class. Maybe he was at 75...
