It’s come back full circle, to the man who promoted BJ to his black belt in BJJ in 1998 – his coach Andre Pederneiras. He will be training Baby jay for the third Frankie Edgar fight, alongside Jose Aldo, and I can’t be more thrilled. It’s about time BJ got back into a ‘real camp’ after milling about Hawaii for his camps of late, and it’s showed.
“It was a honor to receive this invitation, B.J. and his brother are really close. He is really excited and motivated with his fight against Edgar. It’s going to be a great opportunity for me to show my work as a coach to the audience outside of Brazil, which is not used to see my work closely.”
“We’ve studied Edgar’s game a lot for Aldo’s fight,” he said, “so I believe there’s no better place and sparrings better for B.J. to come back in great fashion and motivated.”
Say it with me: YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
