Avellan Defeats Gracie

Miami FFA instructor David Avellan DEFEATS Rener Gracie, who is the Grandson of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu creator Helio Gracie and Nephew of UFC Legend Royce Gracie, by a score of 13-7 in what was considered to be an upset… But we at the Freestyle Fighting Academy (FFA) don’t see it as an upset.

We already knew what the result was going to be. The Freestyle Fighting Academy, ran by Marcos Avellan and David Avellan, has been Florida’s BEST KEPT SECRET for a long time. It wasn’t until the last three years that the FFA instructors decided to start traveling to take their skills on the road did people outside of Florida here about them. Now the entire WORLD knows about FFA.

At the Ultimate Submission Showdown, held by UFC creator Rorion Gracie, David Avellan faced Rener Gracie in a NO TIME LIMIT match that would solidify the FFA as one of the TOP academies in the WORLD. No one gave David a chance against Rener – who is Rorian Gracie’s son. Rorion is the person responsible of bringing Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to America and ultimately the world.

When the match began Rener Gracie showed everyone that he has incredible skills… and who would’ve thought anything different as Rener has been training since a child. But on the other hand, it was FFA’s David Avellan that would show what heart, determination, and killer technique can do. After David escaped a few of Rener’s submission attempts like a magical escape artist, Avellan began putting on a guard passing clinic that had the crowd in amazement. David was dominating Gracie in their own tournament – in their own house!

As David was approaching the 12 point mark (which would end the match) – the referee started trying to deny David his win by not rewarding the appropriate points. David passed guard again for what should have been the winning three points – but after holding his winning position for what seemed like 12 seconds (he only needs three seconds of control), the referee still did not give the points. So David, like a wizard, passed guard AGAIN but this time began counting out loud for the entire audience to hear, “ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!” At this point, David could not be denied and was FINALLY awarded the win.

One viewer came up and said,

“I can’t believe how you dismantled Gracie the way you did, your technique is awesome!”

Another viewer said,

“I can’t believe I’ve never heard of you, you beat a Gracie family member Black Belt like it was nothing!”

And in his always humble and quiet demeanor David replied,

“Thank you, our school is called the Freestyle Fighting Academy and we’re located in South Florida. If you are ever in town, we would love for you to stop by.”
