On Sunday Fernando “Margarida” Pontes stopped in at Fabio Santos’ academy in San Diego for a seminar. After a warm-up the former state, national, and world black belt champion showed a few moves and invited anyone in the room to roll with him. All who rolled with Margarida learned quickly what world champion knee in the belly feels like.
Not to fear, I spent a few minutes after the seminar and got a brief interview that we’ll include in next week’s episode of The FightWorks Podcast. Hey, if there is just one man who gave world champion Roger Gracie a hard time on his way to winning the 2007 BJJ Mundials, you want to know what he’s up to right?
