Murilo Bustamante

Murilo Bustamante is one of the few grapplers who can be called a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu master. In addition to being a black belt, the highly decorated Bustamante has won numerous world titles in the art of Jiu Jitsu. Now in the arena of mixed martial arts, Bustamante joins Mario Sperry and the Nogueira brothers (Antonio Rodrigo and Antonio Rogerio) as members of the Brazilian Top team, one of the premiere MMA teams in the world. Though Bustamante possesses incredible submission skills, he compliments them with a solid boxing background, making him a difficult match-up. His impressive resume includes wins over Jerry Bohlander of the Lion's Den, Dave Menne (which won him the UFC middleweight championship) and Matt Lindland (at a time when Lindland was undefeated). With his slick ground game, quick hands and aggressive fighting style, "Busta" is looking to wreak havoc in the PRIDE FC middleweight rankings!
