Marcus Almeida continues to shine in his transition to MMA.
The multiple-time jiu-jitsu world champion and ADCC gold medalist picked up another win inside the cage. Almeida (3-0) stopped Simon Carson in the first round of their heavyweight contest at Friday’s ONE Championship 158 in Kallang, Singapore.
The official stoppage came by TKO (punches) at the 2:24 mark of Round 1.
“Buchecha” went professional in late 2021 and since he’s racked up three consecutive stoppage wins. Two of those wins came by submission and the other by TKO. Almeida didn’t have an amateur career and currently trains out of American Top Team in South Florida.
Almeida, 32, is one of the greatest and most accomplished grapplers in the history of sport jiu-jitsu. He’s a member of the IBJJF Hall of Fame.
