Kookbox Blog VI: Joel Tudor Draws Even On The World Stage

This is just a quick update on our fearless leader who was last heard from before getting on a plane to go to the submission fighting World Championships in Barcelona.  The good news is that Joel won his first no-gi fight at the prestigious Abu Dhabi tournament against the European Jiu Jitsu champion, Renier via submission.  The bad news is that Joel lost his second fight via submission to Rubens Charles who also defeated Nakamura from Japan. 

Nobody said it was going to be easy, but the mere fact that Joel actually won a fight on the world stage of submission fighting says a whole lot about him.  Let us not forget that this is a sport that he picked up no more than a decade ago. Joel gets some serious props for getting on a plane to fight against World Class athletes when you could very well lose your life in the process.
