Andre Galvao...the next Rickson??
Another great example would be local boy and "Phenom" BJ PENN! However, after viewing this fight between Andre Galvao and John Alessio I feel as if we are embarking on another one of those special rides. Alessio, who is an excellent striker with solid wrestling and definetly training jiu-jitsu, was to be a gnarly test for the brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion.
What really got me stoked was the fact that I've been watching this guy the past few years in the Pan-American Championships, the Worlds, and every 101 Submissions video to date. This clip is the second half of the fight, and to see the first half simply check it on youtube. The first minutes involved them feeling each other out on their feet, but that didn't last too long as Galvao positions himself behind Alessio as he wanted to hold the ropes.
Starting with this clip you will see a perfect display of jiu-jitsu finishing a well seasoned opponent...I thought for sure he was gonna choke him from the body triangle..TOP LEVEL AS IT GETS!!
