Two-time absolute world champion of Jiu-Jitsu Rodrigo Comprido works with former UFC champion Brock Lesnar on his ground game. He ended up watching his athlete lose his belt to Cain Velasquez at UFC 121. Even so, he was impressed.


“It was an incredible fight, I’ve never seen two heavyweights go at it with such gusto. It was certainly one of the most exciting fights the division’s ever seen. Personally, I learned a lot and can assure you that the next time I’m in the corner against Velasquez, my fighter’s will be the one raised,” he says in analysis.


Now Cain will have Junior Cigano ahead of him for his first title defense. A great number of people believe the champion will be a tough nut to crack. Comprido feels it isn’t impossible.


“I have faith in Cigano and am rooting for him. I know he’ll be slick on the ground because he trains with beasts like Demian Maia, Minotauro, and Minotouro,” he says in closing.
