On Saturday Night Rafael Lovato Jr. took on Kevin Holland at Legacy FC 46.
It only took 1:25 seconds for Rafael to prove that jiu jitsu is a key component to success in MMA. The fighters very quickly went to the ground within 10 seconds.
Rafael controlled the scramble, and mounted his opponent 1-minute in. Rafael landed a few strikes eventually advanced to the back, and rear-naked choked his opponent, Kevin Holland, with 3:35 left in the 1st Rd. Rafael has now added another submission victory to his 2-0 MMA record.
Rafael has transitioned to MMA so wonderfully, and has utilized his jiu jitsu in each of his fights. We hope to see more success from the jiu jitsu fighter as he continues on his MMA journey.
