Rob and Dave speak with American BJJ Icon and Bellator Middleweight Champion Rafael Lovato Jr. A true mixed martial artist in every sense, as he has been training martial arts his whole life, from Jeet Kune Do, Boxing, Wrestling, and of course Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

They also discuss old matches Rob and Dave had with Lovato, along with who the Ribeiro brothers took his BJJ game to the next level, and what it means to live the martial arts lifestyle.

Robert returns from Miami off a major coaching win at Substars with Fellipe Andrew scoring another submission win against Patrick Gaudio and speaks about the particular way Andrew uses the foot lock. He also talks about how entertaining the sumo wrestling was, which brings about a conversation on how diversified grappling styles are being used in grappling shows now.

The two then talk about the strange match at Submission Underground Tag Team match between Vinny Magalhaes, Kyle Boehm, Nick Rodriguez, and Craig Jones. This opens the door to a wide variety of topics, from the important of fighting using smart strategy, to corrupt promoters robbing David's brother, how Kent Peters became a Tik Tok sensation cutting up a bale of hale, onto how Dan Kennedy's book, No B.S. Time Management can save Robert's sanity.
