Magno Almeida is one of those skilled up-and-coming fighters who grinds out the wins with jiu jistsu, fight after fight after fight. Either his opponents don’t take him seriously or just don’t know what he’s capable of.
Granted, on this outing it took him a while to sink in the rear-naked choke, but he kept at it and he does finally take the win with it.
We’re keeping this guy on our “Fighters to Watch” radar. We believe he’ll be leaving his mark, and his defeated opponents, all over the mixed martial arts world in the next 5 years.
