Budovideos and Shoyoroll team up to support a friend in need... (2011-02-02)
Last month the mountain region of Rio de Janeiro experienced tremendous flooding, resulting in the deaths of over 600 victims, among them the mother of BJJ champion and our friend, Pablo Popovitch. The landslide demolished his parents home, resulting in his mother's death and his father's hospitalization in critical condition. Given the current state of health care in Brazil, Pablo has issued a plea for assistance in getting his father moved to a private institution that is better equipped to treat him and aid in his recovery.
Pablo has been a Budovideos and Shoyoroll sponsored athlete for some time now, and we hope to help him in his time of need. We will be issuing a limited edition Shoyoroll T-shirt, with $20 of each sale going directly to benefit Pablo and his family as they attempt to recover from this disaster. Simply purchasing one of these limited T-shirts will go a long way in showing Pablo the support that the BJJ community has to give, and you can also visit his website to donate directly.

When we last put out notice that Shoyoroll Gis were available for preorder, the collective force of everyone's frantic clicking and typing caused severe enough tremors that seismographs all over the world stopped printing out squiggly lines and just started printing "DOOMSDAY HAS COME" over and over.

Does Jiu-Jitsu University meet expectations? (2008-11-24)
With all of the hype surrounding Saulo Ribeiro’s newest book, Jiu-Jitsu University, you would think that its a Nintendo Wii or Tickle Me Elmo. But is the book worth it? Does it live up to the exceedingly high expectations?
Before I review, here’s a warning - I’m a little biased, I’ve known Budo Blog contributor and Jiu-Jitsu University co-author, Kevin Howell for years, but I’m going to be objective. I just hope he doesn’t armlock me when he reads this... more
UFC® 91 Couture vs. Lesnar (2008-11-10)
Drama...the ability to create tension, that builds interest beyond the norm. An aging legend against a big strong guy whose personality draws attention is a good starting point. But the forgotten thing in the lead up to Randy Couture defending his ‘non-interim’ heavyweight championship against Brock Lesnar, and the thing that will most likely, and deliberately, be forgotten is Couture’s recent “vacation” from the UFC...MORE

UFC 90: SILVA vs. COTE - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2008-10-20)
To me, there are 4 champions currently competing in MMA who have proven to be truly dominant over top level competition: BJ Penn, Georges St. Pierre, Fedor Emelianenko and...Anderson Silva. To try to rank them over or below each other is a micromanager’s tribute to speculative boredom. “Pound For Pound” discussions are strictly opinion, with no way to ‘prove’ the claim. “Fantasy MMA,” oh brother...

UFC 88: Breakthrough - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2008-09-03)

UFC 87: Seek And Destroy - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2008-08-05)
Georges “Rush” St. Pierre meeting Jon Fitch, along with the lightweight eliminator clash between Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta, will give hardcore fans plenty to get excited about. The problem the UFC is going to face however (and I’ve been predicting it for a while) is that because they have so many dates booked to capitalize on the gravy train created by the success of The Ultimate Fighter TV series, the top-draw, money making talent pool is starting to thin out and the undercards, and possibly the main events in the not to distant future, are starting to show the effects.

Vulkan Gis Rock! (2008-07-25)
One of the perks of being a Budovideos employee is having access to the newest products. A couple weeks ago the brand new 2008 Vulkan gis arrived and I was first in line to get one.
Even though I have 6 gis already, a 2 of them have shrunk down so much that they aren’t very comfortable to wear. I try to hang dry my gis but sometimes my wife forgets and tosses them in the dryer. When a gi shrinks down the sleeves become shorter (sometimes to the point of being illegal in competition)...

UFC 84: Ill Will (2008-05-21)
Since the UFC reintroduced the lightweight division, after a nearly two year absence, Sherk and Penn’s name have been consistently in the hat as far as guys who could or would be the top guy at that weight, “if” they ever held a title fight again. But no one really thought that there would be the kind of combustion and animosity that has grown between the two.
Coming this June, the 2008 Pan Jiu Jitsu Championships. Now on 3 DVDs! (2008-04-24)

UFC 83: Serra vs. St. Pierre II Preview by Stephen Quadros (2008-04-15)
This rematch is nothing personal, only business…ALL business. And, other than Matt Serra’s teammate Pete Sell referring to the former champion/challenger as a “mental midget”, there are no tricks, no theatrics or showboating here. In their hearts, both men know this is a fight for survival. Whether they admit it or not, they both STILL have something to prove: Matt Serra-was his first shocking victory a fluke and Georges St. Pierre-can he shake the post KO victim curse of nerves and/or falling into the resulting tentativeness/inconsistency?

Marcelo Garcia, winner of five Brazilian jiu-jitsu world championships and a man many feel is the best pound-for-pound submission grappler of all time, unveils the secrets behind the most effective guard system in existence—the X-Guard. Unlike most jiu-jitsu instructional books, Garcia leaves no stone unturned. Not only does he show you how to sweep your opponent using the X-Guard from nearly every control position, he shows you how to do it both with a gi and without. Covering everything from grips to timing, this book will be a savior to anyone wishing to compete in jiu-jitsu tournaments, no-gi grappling competition or mixed martial arts. Click here for more

Mastering the Open Guard with Tinguinha… (2008-03-05)
Mauricio “Tinguinha” Mariano has done a lot of work for you. Besides playing a large role in the creation of many of the modern open guard moves while a student at the Gracie Barra Academy in Rio, he has also laid them all out for the benefit of everyone. In Tinguinha’s widely popular Ultimate Open Guard Series, Tinguinha takes all levels of practitioners through the Spider Guard, Sitting Up Guard, and Cross Guard, and later he puts them all together in one of the most dynamic volumes to date- The Extreme Open Guard.
UFC 82: Pride of A Champion (2008-02-27)
This is a match I have personally been waiting for and advocating for years. Believe me, I am excited that it is finally here. If you leave Henderson’s teammate Matt “The Law” Lindland out of the equation (and sadly the UFC seems to have done just that, which to me is the sport’s loss), Anderson Silva versus Dan Henderson is the greatest middleweight fight that MMA has to offer or could produce at this moment in time. Expectation-wise this ranks up there with the first match of Fedor Emelianenko and Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira (Pride 25) or the second clash between Georges St. Pierre and Matt Hughes (UFC 65).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Guards with Telles and Russell… (2008-02-01)In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the turtle historically has been seen as a conduit to either recovering guard or getting your guard passed (or possibly being submitted). However, over the last few years a lot of these views have changed as the turtle has become an offensive staging ground for sweeps, reversals, and even some submissions. While some have been slow to accept this changing paradigm shift about the turtle, others have embraced the unique aspects of this game. Nowhere else is this change so obvious than in the two Turtle specific volumes by Josh Russell and Eduardo Telles. Following is a cross comparison review of both instructionals where there can only be one winner and it isn’t the hare. Read the full post
UFC 81: Breaking Point (2008-01-31)
I’m not going to read the cue card of all Lesner’s non-mixed martial art athletic achievements. Just watch the pay per view for all that “justification” for him entering the company as a headliner in his first fight there. Does he deserve the hype? Of course he does. Brock Lesner IS a badass AND a personality. Dull fighters pay attention and break out your notepads… Click here to read the entire preview
UFC 80: Rapid Fire - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2008-01-16)
To me Penn is the clear favorite here. I know Stevenson has more experience ‘on paper’ (28-7 compared to BJ’s 11-4-1). But come on, BJ Penn submitted Takanori Gomi, Matt Hughes and Jens Pulver and won decisions over Matt Serra and Renzo Gracie. And even in the rare occasions that he lost, the opposition always paid a heavy price (and probably doesn’t look forward to a rematch). Proof of this is in evidence in the two highest profile losses the Prodigy has had – against Matt Hughes (in their second fight) and Georges St. Pierre. In both matches Penn was in complete control early with that brutal, in-the-pocket standup style that he most likely acquired at birth. Both matches appeared to be his, but both slipped through his fingers. Why? Read on…

UFC 79: Nemesis - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2007-12-27)
2007 was another massive year for the Ultimate Fighting Championship. 13 pay per views, 6 Ultimate Fight Nights and two more seasons of TUF (The Ultimate Fighter). Whew! Their production crew must be weary. But as the visibility of their product grows, so does their need to book solid fight cards from top to bottom.
After a relatively lukewarm response to the ‘running on fumes’ lineup of UFC 77: “Validation”, “Nemesis” certainly shows the company returning to somewhat of it’s previous, formidable self. Although there are no championship matches here, it doesn’t matter. A good number of these are fights people want to see.

UFC 78 - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2007-11-13)
The Ultimate Fighter "reality" TV series is known for many things: trash talk, claustrophobic living conditions, emotional meltdowns...and of course (in theory) producing the future stars of MMA. Two of those alumni, Rashad Evans and Michael Bisping, have been on a collision course since they both graduated from the show with top honors on (back-to-back) seasons 2 and 3 respectively.

UFC 77: Hostile Territory - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2007-10-12)
Anderson "The Spider" Silva knows the feeling of fighting in "hostile territory". When he made his debut in Cage Rage (UK) on September 11, 2004 it was against a man who was feared on the street as well as in the cage, England’s “Lighting” Lee Murray. Murray had just KO’d The Spider’s then-training partner Jose "Pele" Landy and played the UK versus Brazil angle to almost disrespectful heights at the pre-Anderson fight weigh-in.

Budo Blog: The Essential Grappling DVDs (2007-09-21)
For this week’s Essential Series Entry, we’re looking at my favorite ten gi less grappling events or specials. The criteria is simple, these are the ten events that I feel everyone could be happy with as a part of their collections. The only guideline that I have imposed on myself is that I pick only one event from each production.
UFC 75: Champion vs Champion - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2007-09-04)
Champion versus champion…that sounds great on paper. And it IS true to a certain extent. But it seems that this will be one of only three possible “unification” matches between the UFC® and “the organization formerly known as Pride”. Heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko and ”lightweight” (160 pounds) Takanori Gomi are the only remaining Pride champions in existence, besides Dan Henderson (who holds both the Pride 183 AND 205 pound titles), who have not lost their titles inside the ring (or now cage since the UFC® took things over). But since it realistically looks like there may not ever be another actual Pride show...
The Secrets to Gracie Fighter’s Success… (2007-08-21)
When looking at the current crop of champion factories in the BJJ and MMA world, one cannot overlook the powerhouse Cesar Gracie Competition Team. With champions and fighters like Dave Terrell, Gil Castillo, Nick and Nate Diaz, Jake Shields, and Gilbert Melendez, it is clear that Cesar Gracie offers something important as an instructor. To discover what this special “something” is, we are going to be diving into Cesar Gracie’s DVD legacies, his 3 disc Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Instructional by Ultimate Imports as well as the self produced 6 volume Gi-Less Jiu-Jitsu set.
This is a preview of

UFC 74: Respect - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2007-08-21)
On The Not So Scientific Art Of Picking Winners
I have always enjoyed writing this column because it makes me take a long look at what’s happening in the world of American pay per view MMA events, which these days means the UFC® exclusively (the owners of the UFC, the Fertitta brothers, devoured their competition, the ‘other’ MMA pay per view event, Pride, last year).
So here we are in 2007: the sport is mainstream and the athletes are much more evolved. But in that evolution comes the uncertainty of predicting who will prevail in any given contest. Longtime UFC® matchmaker Joe Silva has done such an outstanding job on putting together contests that have defied even the best odds makers...
Attack, attack, and then attack some more with Cobrinha… (2007-08-01)
When it comes to instructionals, there are usually two major subcategories that arise: 1. Encyclopedic- including the macro every move under the sun as well as the micro/position specific instructional and 2. Game specific- where the player tries to give insight into why his/her jiu-jitsu works so well. However, sometimes the dividing line between these subcategories becomes hazy and this is definitely the case with the recently released Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles Vol. 1 and Cobra Jiu-Jitsu 2 instructionals by Bull Terrier out of Japan.
The Budo Blog: The Essential Rigan Machado (2007-07-19)
When I first thought of the idea of showcasing a certain athlete and his material, Rigan Machado was the first person to come to mind. The reason is simple… Rigan has a ton of knowledge, experience, and product both written and video from multiple publishers, therefore he was a prime candidate for the Essential Series. In addition, Rigan is respected as one of the greatest BJJ practitioners of his era and is also one of the five famous Machado brothers of jiu-jitsu.

UFC 73: Stacked - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2007-07-02)
The UFC® is billing this show as “the biggest fight card of the summer” and you know what, it is! Damn, this event has something for everyone: “famous” fighters (former champion Tito Ortiz), a former Pride champion (Rodrigo Nogueira), up and coming contenders who seem on the verge of being champion (TUF 2 champ Rashad Evans) and two true current champions (Anderson Silva and Sean Sherk) defending their belts against legitimate challengers (Nate Marquardt and Hermes Franca). “Stacked” is right.

Strikeforce: Shamrock vs Baroni (2007-06-19)
don’t think anyone can argue that the UFC® (Ultimate Fighting Championship®) is
the reigning leader in the field of MMA (mixed martial arts)…at the moment.
Since the fall (“purchase”, whatever) of Japan’s Pride organization there has
been no real sustained threat to toppling the UFC’s growing stature. In the US
they dominate the ticket sales and the airways.

In this literary encounter, we are pitting BJ Penn’s new MMA Book of Knowledge against Rodrigo Gracie’s No Holds Barred! Fighting Techniques. Who will be the winner? Without further adeu, let’s get to the action…

UFC 68: The Uprising - Preview by Stephen Quadros (2007-02-28)
“The Uprising?” But…oh wait…I get it! The era of the non-sequitur is upon us! It is now official, MMA event titles do not have to reflect on or represent anything that is on the show. This actually frees an organization up quite a bit and allows unlimited “creativity” when monikering it’s products. I truly look forward to UFC 97 “Here’s Johnny,” UFC 98 “Dazed And Confused,” UFC 99 “Return Of The Living Dead” and of course UFC 100 “Vapors. Good stuff…
Pride 33: Preview (2007-02-16)Title fights by nature are supposed to represent the best that combat sports have to offer, top contenders vying for the top position…in their division. And both champion Wanderlei Silva and challenger “Dangerous” Dan Henderson are surely two of the best fighters…in their two separate weight categories. Yeah, Dan finally moved down to 183 pounds a few years back and (as expected) won the Pride belt there on New Years Ever (2005) after a grueling tournament that saw him best Murilo Bustamante (a second time) by decision in the finals...

UFC 67: All or Nothing - Preview (2007-01-26)
Anderson “The Spider” Silva has taken the UFC by storm. First it was his flawless dissection of TUF tough guy Chris Leben in June 2006. Then came his title winning effort by rearranging Rich Franklin’s face with his much-vaunted knees that left American fans ready to erect statues and change religions. The buzz around Silva by fans who thought him to be a “new” fighter...
