Lovato Victorious in Europe, Next Stop ADCC!
Tuesday, August 13, 2013
This past Saturday, Rafael Lovato Jr. faced off against Lucio "Lagarto" in a superfight at the premiere Grapplers Quest event in Europe! After a hard fought 10 minutes and some good exchanges from both, Lovato was able to defeat Lagarto by a takedown and a lead in advantages. Lovato used his no-gi pressure passing to nearly pass the dangerous guard of Lagarto and force him to turtle where Lovato nearly suck the choke at the very end. Lovato was very happy to have such a great reception from the European fans and can't wait to be back there competing again! This was a great way to jumpstart the intense phase of the Team Lovato ADCC camp and Rafael will be fixing his mistakes to be as sharp as possible in China at ADCC!
