Fabio Holanda for the win!

My jiu jitsu instructor Fabio Holanda was in action this weekend at the MFC show in Edmonton. From MMA Ring Report (probably your best source for all Central and Western Canada MMA news):

Cornered by UFC veteran Patrick Cote, Fabio Holanda used his strong ground and pound tactics to take out the durable and game Shaun Krysa in the second round of their fight to get back on the winning track. Holanda was able to show a solid punching arsenal landing some solid shots to the face of the previously undefeated Krysa and took the mount and pound victory in the second stanza via ref stoppage. After the fight and at the post fight press conference Holanda asked the MFC president Mark Pavelich to put the 155 lb lightweight belt on the line for him to fight for, it remains to be seen if Holanda will indeed fight for the belt.

I wanted to go into classes on Monday to congratulate Fabio but I was battling a hangover so severe I was liable to vomit / shit myself if anyone even squeezed a closed guard too tight.

    When i first began practicing BJJ it was in Ottawa at Ronin MMA gym. Fabio Holanda is head instructor of that gym, but he only comes down for seminars.
    Now I’m in Atlanta training under Junior Assuncao.

    Nice, you’re from Ottawa? I lived there up until about 3 years ago.
