Classic BJJ Matches Roleta vs Saulo

INSIDE BJJ presents Jiu-Jitsu Classics.
This classic match pits Roberto “Roleta” Magalhaes against Saulo Ribeiro. Roleta is credited with creating the “Inverted Guard” and in the nineties was one of the most decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors earning a reputation for having the best guard.

Roberto Magalhaes continued his rampant career through the late 1990′s and the early 2000′s getting the reputation of the best guard in Jiu Jitsu during that period, a very impressive title since the guard is probably BJJ’s greatest contribution to Martial Arts, while also achieving academic prowess by doing his masters in Industrial Engenieering.
