    From their official youtube channel, I looked it up and I guess this match was from July 2009 and his opponent is Katsuya Toida.



    Just thought I'd share it, Rafa's sweeps to the back are always real impressive. Enjoy!

    I know DEEP puts on pure grappling matches. How many do they do and how much do they pay the fighters?

    look,

    he needs to train to submit the person and there is no time limit, you know what kind of wide sweeping changes that is for a person who trains bjj?

    Like I said, this match was from July 2009, before he won the Worlds, Europeans, Nationals, and ADCC, which were his leverage for not accepting the 10k offer.

    i thought he did not accept due to the fact that he would have to train to fight until submission.

    i do not recall rafa making a counter offer to the 10k, so i am not sure about that leverage.

    I would kill a puppy in front of a little girl just to have Rafa put out a DVD on his back takes from guard.

    It's obvious that Rafa likes the $$$ so it's definitely time for him to come up with a professional DVD set a la his rival Cobrinha's 7-volume series.
