Hi everyone, we hope the holidays were good to everyone. As you can see, we gave Submission Control a facelift. We hope you like the new layout.

Ok, back to some serious Brazilian Jiu Jitsu action! To kick off 2012 right, today we feature one of the many battles between two elite BB feather weights currently active in competition, Rubens Charles vs. Rafael Mendes!

The below match took place at the 2010 brasileiro in the famed Tijuca Tenis Clube in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rather than playing passive and hoping that someone makes a mistake, Rafa and Cobrinha really go at it this time!

Enjoy the match!
