Funny enough her husband took up on training Brazilian jiu-jitsu after a recommendation from an ex-girlfriend. After success in competitive BJJ and submission wrestling, he started his career in MMA. At age 17 he moved to Spain where he taught the art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, at the time he was a purple belt but three years later he became a black belt.
He has been fighting for over a decade. In June of 2010, he solidified his spot as a top heavyweight by submitting Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko, ending Fedor’s unprecedented decade long 28-fight win streak. He is currently ranked as the #2 heavyweight in the world.
