Roger Gracie smashed more opponents yesterday at the Mundials.

In today’s episode of The FightWorks Podcast, we have coverage of the biggest BJJ events that have taken place since our last show.

  1. The promotion of Gracie Barra’s Carlos Gracie Jr to red and black belt after 32 years as a black belt. Earlier this week on TheFightWorksPodcast.com we posted video of the event but there are surely those in our listening audience who may not have caught those videos yet. We are going to include the audio of the congratulatory speeches from Rickson Gracie and Renzo Gracie for Carlinhos.
  2. We are smack in the middle of the 2008 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Championships at Cal State University Long Beach’s pyramid. The world’s very best BJJ competitors have arrived and the chips have already begun to fall. We have audio from:
    • Robert Drysdale & Demian Maia, two world champions who are not competing this year as they’re moving on to MMA.
    • Alliance’s Fabio Gurgel and Tarsis Humphries, before the day’s action began.
    • Kid Peligro will help go over some of the results thus far in the competition.

    We’ll bring you the details of all the big news from yesterday, straight from our play-by-play.
