Video of the Day - Magalhaes v. Weidman

Here is Vinny Magalhaes going against current UFC fighter Chris Weidman in a 2009 ADCC qualifier match. Vinny went on to take a bronze in both the absolute and under 99KG's in 2009. He would win the over 99KG division this year.

Wiedman, who took 3rd in the NCAA's at 197 pounds in 2007, has started his MMA career off with 9 straight victories, going 5-0 in the UFC. His last win was a KO of Mark Munoz.

Vinny's M-1 Global contract finally expired, opening his way to a return to the UFC. He has won 6 straight, including an M-1 belt. Vinny submitted Igor Pokrajac at UFC 152 with a beautiful armbar. An argument can be made that he deserved the submission of the night over Jon Jones. He will next fight Phil Davis at UFC 159.
