Leo Viera is a Wizard

I'm not sure how many of you guys who are just starting to get into MMA are familiar with Leozinho. He's a legend in jiu-jitsu and one of the most phenomenal gi grapplers I've ever seen.

Thought I'd share this video with you. Obviously, this is just Leo playing, but the technical stuff is fantastic and there's a lot to be learned from watching the little motions of guys with that kind of ability.

Leo Viera, with or w/o the gi, is a terror to grapple. His aggression and speed is mighty awesome!

He most definitely is. It was pretty funny how bad he dominated Eddie Bravo.

That was an amazing fight. Rarely do I see that kind of decimation. It was pretty impressive.

That guy is slick. I love how he just takes up a notch each time. Very fun to watch, its awesome to see smooth transitions and subs like that.

Favorite Fighters: Fedor, Karo Parisyan, Nate Marquardt, Demian Maia and now Jon Jones

Lol man. That knee on belly against the white belt brings back some memories of earier today when I sparred my BJJ instructor. God I hate it when he does that.
