Jiu-Jitsu didn’t only appear at UFC 139 as a plastic finalization by Urijah Faber over the former champion Brian Bowles. The art was in evidence during the combat between Shogun and Henderson, when Brazilian’s guard saved him at the third round. And during the fight between Chris Weidman and the playful Tom Lawlor, when Chris, undefeated for seven fights, beat Tom.
Chris, who comes from Long Island and is a Jiu-Jitsu purple belt under Matt Serra and John Danaher, has fought at ADCC (in 2009) and enjoys no-gi competitions. If he didn’t see how he has done it, check it out below, with a class by the brothers Gracie Ryron and Rener.
