Fabricio Morango camoesTonight the University of Jiu-Jitsu had a successful debut in its mixed martial arts coaching debut, as Fabrico “Morango” defeated Los Angeles area BJJ black belt Joe Camacho on the ShoXC mixed martial arts card, televised on SHOWTIME.

Saulo and Xande Ribeiro opened the University of Jiu-Jitsu about a year or so ago here in San Diego, and since then have branched out into coaching MMA fighters. Among other aspiring MMA fighters such as Diego Garijo under their care, they also help prepare UFC fighter Diego Sanchez.

Sanchez, BJJ brown belt Leo Santos, and Saulo Ribeiro were all present for Morango’s victory tonight, as was Xande Ribeiro, who has stated that he will begin his own MMA career after competing at the Brazilian jiu-jitsu world championships, or Mundials this year.
