www.thefightworkspodcast.comBrasa jiu-jitsu ace Robert Drysdale will join us this week on The FightWorks Podcast. Drysdale, who defeated Marcelo Garcia in the absolute division of the ADCCs in 2007, has been busier than ever. In our chat in this episode Drysdale answers two questions from you, the Mighty 600,000, about the challenges of being a big guy in jiu-jitsu, about being Frank Mir’s submission grappling coach on the eighth season of Spike TV’s The Ultimate Fighter, preparing for his MMA debut on October 17th, opening his own new school in Las Vegas, and more.

Gracie Barra’s Flavio Almeida appears this week as well. We will discuss the brand new Gracie Barra Competition Network, which is GB’s new effort to begin holding regional tournaments around the country just for folks who train at Gracie Barra associations, with the goal of preparing their jiu-jitsu competitors for the highest level of competition. The first tournament from the GBCN will be held at Irvine Valley College on October 25th.
