The Jiu-Jitsu savant secured a first-round triangle choke victory over Tofiq Musayev at Rizin 28.

-the incredible outpouring of emotion with his team Bonsai Jiu-Jitsu reacting to the victory

-his special bond with fellow Rizin killer Kleber Koike

-Rizin having a Tokyo Dome show and combat sports returning to that iconic venue after many years

-watching PRIDE FC as a young man in Brazil looking up to fighters like Minotauro and Wanderlei Silva

-training for close to a year straight and now unwinding with family

-his tentative timeline for getting back in December for Rizin's NYE show
