Ara?jo / Team TATAMEAt the same time that BJJ black belt Marcelo Garcia goes to United States to fight in the Arnold/Gracie Submission Tournament on March 5th, the Alliance?s black belt will also be conducting seminars in Atlanta and in New York. The Arnold/Gracie Submission competition will be a great test for the champion of under 77kg division in ADCC, and Garcia says he will be ready for Abu-Dhabi 2005 as well. ‘The Arnold will be a great training for me and I am sure I will be very confident to fight ADCC after the tournament. I ended not fighting so much in Brazil in 2004 and this tournament comes at a great time for me’ Garcia said. Last December, Alliance fighter was to do the main fight of the Cerrado Cup in Brazil, but due to organizational problems, he did not fight.
