On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman spoke with grappler Tom Maenurm of Team Scardovelli in Italy.
We spoke with him by Skype Thursday.
His path to competing in ADCC events did not begin with grappling, but MMA.
"With MMA, of course, I had to do some ground work and jiu-jitsu, and I started to like it very much," he said.
After achieving success in MMA by grappling, he decided it was grappling he liked better.
"So, I stopped doing MMA and I started dedicating more time to jiu-jitsu."
Now, after a series of grappling victories, he is ready to move up to the professional level at ADCC events.
We also discussed more on his background and plans for future competitions, how he likes to go for submissions and not stall, how he has not yet decided if he will try to compete at the ADCC European Championship 2018 in Bucharest, Romania, and much more.
