Pic from his fight against Carlson Gracie 2nd Degree Black belt Marcelo “Playmobile” Pacha

The fight was declared a draw in regulation time even though I got 2 takedowns and controlled the 10 minutes easily,

 we fought for an extra 5 minutes and Marcelo was awarded the win, basically I got screwed because he was the Prince’s favorite.

  I can’t complain, I should have dumped him on his head in the overtime instead of playing his game.”
