Muscle isn’t the most important weapon in a fighter’s arsenal especially when technical prowess can overcome physical advantages like size and strength. If you know how to properly maneuver and divert damage in an attack, you can ultimately dominate the affair. When this bodybuilder, Lance Bachelor, faces off with Jiu Jitsu black belt Pedro Sauer, it becomes a matter of technician versus athlete, skill against muscle, brain facing brawn. Sauer showcases a cool hand in the mouth of fire by using technique to best a rather intimidating brawler.
Caution: don’t assume you can just kick a bodybuilder’s ass because you took karate lessons when you were little. That’s a surefire way to get your face broken. Sauer is an 8th degree Gracie Jiu Jitsu red and black belt. He’s been training in various martial arts since he was five years old and practiced with the Gracie family including Royce Gracie, arguably the most influential figure in the history of modern mixed martial arts, on a daily basis. It took a lifetime of training for him to learn how to operate against bigger and more powerful men intent on punching his head off.
