Fighting for Freedom

In depth community development initiatives have been developed and implemented since 2011. To date, 2,470 acres of land has been petitioned, lobbied, and legally purchased from the Mokpala (non-Pygmies) and put in the name of the Mbuti Pygmies. 25 water wells have been drilled for both the Pygmies and Mokpala, both of whom had been losing children due to waterborne disease because of zero access to clean water. A small scale farming initiative has recently begun to teach the Mokpala better farming practices, and to teach the Pygmies how to farm their new land to provide for themselves. 17 Congolese nationals and community development specialist have been hired as full time staff because of the strong vision to empower the locals.

ADCC 2015: Davi Ramos Finishes ‘Perfect’ Weekend with Flying Armbar Submission

SAO PAULO -- Davi Ramos turned out to be one of the most impressive grapplers at ADCC 2015, as he closed Sunday’s action by becoming the 170-pound bracket champion. Ramos won his semifinal match by submitting UFC fighter Gilbert Burns , then used a flying armbar to submit Lucas Lepri in the final. All told, Ramos forced three of his four opponents to tap over the course of the tournament. “My weekend was excellent. It was perfect,” Ramos told Sherdog.com. “I only wasn’t able to get the submission on my second fight [because] I was a little ill on Saturday. I wasn’t feeling very well. On Sunday, I woke up feeling a lot better and I knew it was my day, so there it is: two submissions.” Ramos was also the quickest to get things done in the finals, as fighters like Rodolfo Vieira and Felipe Pena went all the way to the 40-minute limit. “As the fight can go as long as 40 minutes, people sometimes wait to go for it at the end,” said Ramos. “I didn’t do that. I was always thinking of submissions since the beginning. Thank God I managed to get that armbar.” The Team Nogueira fighter was immediately clear on his career’s next step after the fight.

Paige VanZant’s ‘12 Gauge’ Arrival

Paige VanZant envisions herself as a UFC champion someday. | Photo: Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Outside of Ultimate Fitness on capital city side streets, Paige VanZant leaned against her 2015 white Toyota Tacoma. Sporting Reebok gear from head-to-toe and an Ultimate Fighting Championship lanyard around her neck as she held her keys, the 21-year-old admitted, “I’m still terrible at parking it.” The midweek 90-degree weather made spaces directly outside the gym coveted. “12 Gauge” pulled in her vehicle slow because she aimed at a tight space with a lot of foot traffic. There were even some bikes cruising through. Chad Mendes rolled by and heckled, “She’s lying.” Her repartee with Team Alpha Male ’s established talent is half-little sister, half-anyone-her-age. “He’s a hater,” she said. In less than a year on the UFC scene, the 5-foot-4 women’s strawweight parlayed two Octagon appearances into a whole new life for herself. VanZant never had designs on becoming a professional prizefighter. However, after a 50-second rear-naked choke win in an amateur bout three years ago, she knew her new lot was to be a champion mixed martial artist.

Fabricio Werdum’s ‘Little Brother’ Orlando Sanchez Wants UFC Spot After ADCC 2015 Victory

SAO PAULO -- Kings MMA fighters Fabricio Werdum and Rafael dos Anjos took home UFC titles in 2015. Now, the gym has an ADCC champion on its roster, too. Orlando Sanchez conquered the heavyweight bracket ad ADCC 2015 on Sunday after a 40-minute bout against Jared Dopp. Now, Sanchez is in the place he feels that he belongs. “I’ve only been doing grappling for seven years. I started really late in my life, but it saved me from being a drug addict and an alcoholic,” Sanchez told Sherdog.com. “I feel like being the greatest heavyweight grappler in the world today is something I deserve. I earned it, and nobody can take it away from me.” Sanchez started the second day of competition at ADCC 2015 with a highly anticipated matchup against Vinny Magalhaes . As the underdog, Sanchez was able to control Magalhaes and earn the win via judges’ decision, avenging a loss his teammate Werdum suffered to Magalhaes in the same event years ago. “ Fabricio Werdum is a brother to me. To train with him, to be in his corner and watch him become the UFC champion gave me the mindset to become the best grappler in the world too,” said Sanchez.

ADCC 2015: Rodolfo Vieira Wins 40-Minute War Against Felipe Pena, Takes First ADCC Title

SAO PAULO -- An emotional Rodolfo Vieira managed to win his first ADCC title on Sunday after a 40-minute match against up-and-comer Felipe Pena. A multiple-time world champion in the gi, Vieira was considered the favorite in the 218-pound division, but he told Sherdog.com that Pena gave him more trouble than anticipated. “I knew it was going to be a tough fight,” Vieira told Sherdog.com. “Felipe is a young athlete, but also very experienced. I expected a hard time, but not as hard as it actually was.” Vieira started the bout explosively and managed to score two takedowns before making his way onto his opponent’s back. However, points are not scored in the first five minutes of ADCC matches, and the fight ended in a draw after two overtime periods. “I went for it all at the beginning and tried to get a quick submission, but he defended himself very well,” explained Vieira. “As time went by, we began to get tired and things got even tougher. It’s very tiring to grapple for 40 minutes.”

ADCC 2015: Rubens ‘Cobrinha’ Charles Claims Another Title, Still ‘Feels Like a Rookie’

SAO PAULO -- Rubens Charles conquered 145-pound division at ADCC 2015 on Sunday, just as he did two years ago in Beijing. With a score of 3-0, “Cobrinha” outpointed Brazilian countryman Bruno Frazatto in the final, adding another title to his extensive hardware collection. “The happiness of being ADCC champion is unique,” Charles told Sherdog.com. “People always ask me if I see myself as a veteran, and yes, I have been competing for several years, but I feel like a rookie. I train as hard as anyone, and that’s what makes me feel good. I’ve trained seven hours a day during my camp to come here and do exactly as I did.” Despite being 36 years old, Cobrinha claimed he is feeling pretty well about his body and the way things have been going with his career. The Parana native said he hopes to defend his title once more in 2017. “I’m on a good diet, I’m feeling well, and if I manage to cut the weight well, I might be back in two years to defend my title.”

September Magic Means the Constant Reality of a Puncher’s Chance

Even when the odds were stacked against him, Sugar Ray Leonard was a late finisher. | Photo: The Ring Magazine/Getty A puncher’s chance. It is the veiled promise of an instant or near-instant reversal of fortune that sets boxing apart from all other sports. In football and basketball, a team trailing by 25 points with a minute to play has no chance of staging a miracle rally. Even in baseball, which has no time limit, the odds against a team coming back from 10 runs down with two outs in the ninth inning are Powerball Lottery-long. But in boxing, a fighter can have lost every second of every round, yet still harbor the hope of landing that one big shot that can snatch victory from the swollen jaw of defeat. It has happened before, nullifying the scorecards of pencil-wielding judges, and no doubt will happen again. September means different things to different people. It’s back-to-school time for students and teachers, the stretch drive for baseball pennants, the start of a new season and the promise of all that entails in football.

[But], her athleticism, her desire to win, I respect every ounce of it. And you know, if she gives it the time, and just trains straight-up boxing, I think she would do really well."

So if I can break that, it would be an awesome thing. Then to be able to have the most finishes as a flyweight – most knockouts, submissions and TKOs? That’s another goal. Just being the most active flyweight and champion. I’m a guy that hasn’t had injuries, and that’s a goal I set for myself.”
