The fight against Saunders (19-6-2) started with both fighters studying each other with good body kicks, and while on clinch the Floridian took the game to the ground, landing on top and “The Predator” worked from the guard, presenting an amazing Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.
He tried an arm bar, transiting to pass the guard and them working a powerful ground and pound until the end of the round, defending very well each rubber guard attempt from Saunders, who had Eddy Bravo on his corner.
Patrick, a Black Belt Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, have been training alot in his camp with Master Fabio Holanda at BTT Canada, and the days in Massachusetts, he also had the help from Master Daniel Gazoni at BTT Boston, the evolution and the confidence of our Canadian’s jiu-jitsu has been outstanding.
