Bibiano Fernandes Announces Comeback To Competing In Jiu-Jitsu

Bibiano Fernandes is a 3x black belt BJJ world champion, who is largely regarded as the top light featherweight athlete of his generation… Though his career took the shift to mixed martial arts (MMA) – where Fernandes also excelled, earning belts in two promotions (DREAM and ONE Championship ). However, it appears that Fernandes is now thinking about competing in BJJ again! Here’s what he had to say in a recent interview for the Gracie Magazine : I want to compete in BJJ again, but first I need to deal with my situation at ONE Championship. I haven’t fought for a year and the organization doesn’t offer a fight. I’m waiting to finish this part of my life with ONE Championship so that I can follow a new path, taking care of my academy, perhaps fighting in the World Masters or other BJJ events. I’m waiting to close this part of my life and turn the page. But I’m already turning the page without waiting for the ONE Championship. And, even though he hasn’t competed in a decade, Fernandes has kept up to date with the competition scene: I like watching Mica Galvão and Diogo Reis, who are also from Manaus. I also like Gordon Ryan, who is an athlete who is evolving a lot. There’s a new generation that I watch in the championships and I like their forward, finishing style. It’s a style I’ve always liked, I’ve never liked to tie up. Besides, their style is good for MMA too, it’s a game they can adapt to if they move to MMA in the future.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Bibiano Fernandes Bjj (@bibianofernandes) The post Bibiano Fernandes Announces Comeback To Competing In Jiu-Jitsu appeared first on Bjj Eastern Europe .
