UFC 142: Aldo, Palhares, Belfort (Gracie Breakdown)
Even though Ryron and Rener took a little longer to post the breakdown than usual, they still managed to keep it real with some solid insight on UFC 142 in Rio. They start by discussing the unique manner in which Rousimar Palhares set up his devastating heel hook on Mike Massenzio and they explain precisely what Palhares did that made the lock so challenging to escape. Then, they go on to explain how Vitor Belfort was able to get the rear naked choke on Anthony Johnson even when Johnson saw it was coming. They also announce the winner of the Gracie Giveaway from last month and they announce the next Gracie Giveaway — a beautiful Series 1 Pearl Weave Gracie Gi (even if you don’t train in the gi, you’re going to want one of these!!) Please share the breakdown with your friends and, as always, make sure the jiu-jitsu haters get access to this stuff as well.
