Xande Ribeiro – 2012 Abu Dhabi Trials (San Diego)

Last weekend was the 2012 Abu Dhabi Trials in San Diego and it was rather action packed. Xande Ribeiro ended up facing Rômulo Barral in his weight division final and Andre Galvao in the absolute final. Now, if you haven’t noticed, I’m a big Andre Galvao fan. Andre has an extremely hard guard to pass and I was extremely surprised at how Xande passed it. Not taking anything away from Xande, because I know who Xande is and I know he’s one of the best in the world, but so is Galvao, so it was interesting to watch. It is good to note that Galvao did win his division, beating Clark Gracie via points from a pass. Anyway, below is a highlight of Xande’s exploits, enjoy!
