#12 Rafael Lovato Jr - The Unknown Strength Podcast
Episode #12 of The Unknown Strength Podcast features the legendary American making history, Rafael Lovato Jr.; an ADCC veteran, BJJ World Champion, Legacy Fighting Champion in MMA, as well as Bellator Middleweight Contender.
Involved in martial arts from a very young age through his Father, Rafael truly embodies the martial arts lifestyle; in his words, "constantly seeking perfection and knowing you'll never reach it". Impressively, Rafael developed his jiujitsu in relative isolation, far removed from the guidance and density of colored belts, now prevalent in today's jiujitsu scene. Indubitably, this shaped his JiuJitsu game, where he learned the benefits of forging structure in his 'game', and how 'routine is everything'.
We also discuss the value of nourishing the mind, how he creates structure to facilitate improved learning for his students as a Coach, as well as his recent experiences at ADCC 2017 and his aspirations in Mixed Martial Arts; where already, he has amassed a 7-0 record, with 6 finishes.
It looks to be another exciting year for one of the world's hottest prospects at middleweight in MMA, so catch this episode and join us in watching Rafael's career unfold in 2018!
