On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman speaks with three-time Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion and ADCC 2009 Absolute and 88 kg submission fighting champion, Braulio Estima.
Besides being one of the most talented and exciting grapplers in the world, he will be making his professional mixed martial arts debut for Shine Fights at a date and against an opponent to be announced very shortly.
While still on a seminar tour of U.S., we spoke with him by phone about his accomplishments, plans, and philosophy. We discussed why he is now entering mixed martial arts, when his first fight is likely to be, and how he is transitioning from jiu-jitsu and grappling to mixed martial arts. We discussed why he likes to fight and compete, and his philosophy which has made him such an exciting competitor who uses many innovative techniques and wins many of his matches by submission. He explained how jiu-jitsu was instrumental in steering him away from being involved in trouble as a youth, and why such martial arts training is important for the youth today. We discussed his intention of competing in mixed martial arts while continuing to compete in grappling, including the Super Fight in the 2011 ADCC World Championships. And we explored the possibility of grappling becoming popular as a spectator sport, and much more.
