Two years ago me and @beamalecki started training together we made a deal that once she got into the @ufc I would get the jacket with her name on the back.... Today am I not only getting that but also getting the honor the be in her corner... So proud of you homie no matter what happens!

Blood sweat and tears... and sometimes when you fight it leads to gold and sometimes defeat. Today I lost but not tomorrow. Never happy about loosing but I fought well and hard. Thank you @alanfinfoujj For always making sure we are the best we could be @jacob_grape And @martinalinnea For being the best team to have with you... Thank you @vedhatoscano For making us feel right at home at the kickass academy Fabio Clemente NYC and always my team at home... @johanneslundstrombjj @nedish @cristalhg @joyiis @hulkazinho @nichosjo @sargon orahim @oscarhakenas @panzerfaust_ @mandyjuventina And last but not least my brother @predragmarkovic 24/7 my brother in arms.
So this little girl fought 5 times today... Started with the open weight class where she lost and hurt her hand... cried... picked herself up and went to fight in her weight class... 4 fights later and she won her first tournament ever... what makes me most proud is not the win but the strenght courage and determination this 11year old showed by fighting on even after getting hurt and loosing... most would break and not even try... she not only tried but conquered ! Love you Iara !
After a torn ligament in my knee and six weeks away this is the way I spar for the first time..... when u r dum u better be tough I guess hahaha Joao has been training with me since day... Big shout out to @samofsweden for the awesome pic !
Inspiration... All the people in this picture inspire me everyday to be the best fighter I could be... Like me they get up early in the dark and cold to work all day long and then show up everytime to practice... tired, hurt, sad... no matter what they show up... Having them around I could do no less and I could never say that I have it hard because they go through it all too... Thank you for making having to step up my game every single day.
This is by far my favorite pic of the whole europeans... taken by my amazing friend from home @predragmarkovic I had my first fight at around 11am and this was my 6th fight at around 18 pm... at the time I still had a few amazing souls near me to support me the whole way.. my coach @alanfinfou who was with me every second and @jacksousabjj giving me support and @nedish who had fought the same day and won silver ! and last but not least @joyiis who stayed there the whole day giving us 110% support even though she had already fought a few days early... my whole team is amazing but the fact that I had those 4 voices with me was what made me get so far... THANK YOU now and always ! P.s I had the 12 points hahah #europeans #ibjjf #alanfinfou #bjj #team #stockholm #allstarsgym #rj #cantagalo #shoyoroll
In the toughest of days the one thing that is always there to keep me going in my bjj... and if it wasn't for my Mestre Alan "Finfou" Nascimento I would not have come so far in my game. The time and care you give us is worth more than any possession in the world. Thank you Mestre ! OSS #bjj #allstarsgym #stockholm #rj
So in these complex times of today where we are everyday understanding more and more the depth and impact of our actions with for example the #metoo I would like to instead of sharing an opinion share a bit of great work that a friend of mine has been doing for a few years now... Not only opening peoples eyes but also giving giving women the tools for coping and self defence... congrats @anoshparvazi u r a great human being and I hope that u guys continue growing more everyday !
