He surprised everyone when he announced he would compete in the IBJJF European Open January 30th. His surgery was scheduled for February 1st. Braulio was moved to compete by the passing of his friend Steve Fan.
This fight is between the last ADCC's super-fight champion Ronaldo Souza vs the last ADCC's absolute champion Braulio Estima. Braulio is considered the local favorite having his ties to England, but Jacare has come off his recent loss to Luke Rockhold in Strikeforce.
After a bit of play back and forth, and Estima atempt at an arm drag to single leg which got Jacare on his back and from which he recovered back to his feet. Looked like Jacare was saving his energy for the long game while Braulio is keeping active. BE into the butterfly guard, with now Jacare trying to pass, Estima tries a footlack and Jacare escapes.
