It’s a Style vs Style
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu vs Catch Wrestling match happened on the Blue Belt jiujitsu.net tournament, Saturday, October 1, 2016. This match would be one of the most inspirational and impressive grappling footages ever.
The folks over at JiuJitsu.net held a Blue Belt Challenge at their headquarters in Orange County, California. Two brackets of sixteen men wearing GIs were set to compete in that tournament.
There were only two weight divisions (under 185 pounds and open weight)!
Will Pursselley, 25, a catch wrestler heavyweight who trains under Erik Paulson. Thalison Soares, 17, BJJ practitioner and Light featherweight with a nickname “Little Miyao”.
This kid is a real prodigy for his European, Pan-American, and World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion titles.
In the video below, we can see Little Miyao attacking his opponent who’s a lot bigger man than him. Pursselley was wholly hopeless and had nothing to “throw” at little Miyao.
Little Miyao immediately pulled guard and goes for a De La Riva guard. He choked the big man out with a beautiful choke.
The fight only lasted for 50 seconds. That’s what it took a 17-year-old prodigy to choke out an opponent who was almost 100 pounds heavier than him.
Little Miyao has proven to us that sizes don’t matter even in a blue belt tournament. Pursselley couldn’t take Soares’ strength until he decided to give the title to Soares.
It was a good fight, though. Fans are expecting to see the two in FS1, Fox Sports 1.
