Episode 35 – Rafael Lovato Jr.

0  comments

Rob and Dave speak with American BJJ Icon and Bellator Middleweight Champion Rafael Lovato Jr. A true mixed martial artist in every sense, as he has been training martial arts his whole life, from Jeet Kune Do, Boxing, Wrestling, and of course Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The trio talk about Lovato’s difficult journey to achieving one of his life long dreams of becoming a MMA world champion, having to endure several injuries, delays, and a potentially terminal disease just weeks before his fight.

They also discuss old matches Rob and Dave had with Lovato, along with who the Ribeiro brothers took his BJJ game to the next level, and what it means to live the martial arts lifestyle.
