I was thrilled to meet up with multiple time BJJ world champion Fabio Gurgel and get him on my show for you.
We talked about everything from his experiences in old school Vale Tudo matches in Brazil to the details of running Alliance and creating a team of world champion BJJ killers.
Also front and center was the debate between traditional vs modern jiu-jitsu, why the level of BJJ right now is the highest it’s ever been, how stalling in matches was worse in the old days, what all world champions have in common, making a living off of jiu-jitsu, and much more.
I think you’ll love it!
