If you need to train top-level jiu-jitsu, there is no better place than Rio de Janeiro.

UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva knows this well, and that’s why he’s in Rio getting ready for his April 18 title defense against Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Thales Leites at UFC 97.

Two BJJ legends are helping Silva prepare: Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza (ADCC 2005 88-kg champion and multiple-time world BJJ champion in his weight class and the absolute class) and André Galvão (current world BJJ Champion and ADCC 2007 third-place finisher at 77 kilograms and the absolute class).

silva was already good but he will look very top notch against leites he isn't taking any chances he will be ready on the ground if leites tries to sub him if it gets to that
