UFC on Fuel – Oliveira’s Reverse Calf Slicer (Gracie Breakdown)

One of the beautiful things about jiu-jitsu is that once you understand the basic principles of leverage and breakage, there is virtually no limit to the number of ways you can submit your opponent. On the undercard for this weekend’s UFC fights, we saw the first reverse calf-slicer ever used in MMA. In this Gracie Breakdown, Rener and Ralek Gracie break down the beautiful chain of leg attacks that Charles Oliveira used to submit Eric Wisely and they announce the winner of the last Gracie Giveaway, a brand new Series 1 Gracie Pearl Weave Gi. Watch it, learn it, and help us create more students of the gentle art by sharing it.
