Episode Info: Riccardo Ammendolia returns to OMR and things get interesting. This time we delve into his jiu jitsu journey on and off the mats. Riccardo discuses his training history including his time on the mats with the greats like Terere, Leo Viera, Comprido, Jacare and the Mendes Brothers. We discuss some big things happening at Atos, Gui Mendes’ decision to retire from active competition and much more. This is just the first half! Later in the show we get an insider’s breakdown of how events are put together. Riccardo may be the most active behind-the-scenes man in the game. He has worked with ADCC, World Pro, Five Grappling, Copa Podio, Ultimate Absolute and more. Widely regarded as the best commentator in jiu jitsu Riccardo discusses what makes a quality grappling broadcast and event. We also discuss what it was like running a fight shop in the MMA/BJJ boom after TUF 1. Whether you compete, host tournaments, run a jiu jitsu realted business or just love to train this is a must listen to episode. Without Riccardo’s support and guidance Open Mat Radio might not even be around.
