(PRESS RELEASE) -- Multiple time jiu-jitsu champion and recent US transplant Renato Migliaccio is putting his 4-0 record on the line on March 28, joining team North America for M-1 Challenge’s “North America vs. Bulgaria.”
Migliaccio will confront the undefeated Yanko Yanev in a battle of submission specialists. All of Yanev’s six wins have come by way of tapout.
While Migliaccio is still a bit of a novice in MMA, his fighting skills run deep. Migliaccio holds a second-degree black belt from the late Ryan Gracie, a second-degree black belt in judo, and is a former member of the Brazilian national Greco Roman wrestling team.
These days Migliaccio can be found juggling his time between being the head jiu-jitsu instructor at Ultimate MMA in Connecticut, working on his stand up with George Lawler and sparring at Ray Longo-Matt SerraÂ´s Academy in Long Island, N.Y.
