October 31, 2011

BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz

In this episode Rener and Ralek Gracie break down the devastating side mount control that Roy Neslon used to devastate Mirko Cro Cop in round 1. They explain the recommended escape options and the key details that made it so challenging for Cro Cop to move. Then, the brothers analyze the critical jiu-jitsu moments of the three-round battle between Diaz and Penn. Particularly, they discuss the first round scramble that gave BJ the back mount on Nick and what BJ did that gave Nick the perfect window to escape and take the fight back. They also announce the winner of the 5.5 oz Gracie Sparring Gloves and they announce the next Gracie Giveaway prize - watch and win! As always, please share this breakdown on all the appropriate forums. The more they understand the less they hate.
