Who is Joao Assis?

Eventually, through some luck and prayer, Joao Assis was able to meet up with some big names and settle into his new home.
These big names include Fabricio Werdum, Rafael Cordeiro, Dan Henderson, Carlson Gracie Junior, Lucas Leite, Robert Drysdale and many others. In America, Joao Assis began to work on his no-gi and wrestling game so that he could get back into MMA, a sport where he first competed in brazil in 2003 but stop focusing on putting more time into his BJJ training.
Since living in the states Joao Assis has trained with big-name teams like Team Quest and competed in both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA.
