Rani Yahya wants “Korean Zombie” after beating Mike Brown

By Guilherme Cruz

The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Rani Yahya had a great performance on the last edition of UFC, which happened last Saturday in Texas, United States. The Brazilian, who was set to fight “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, step up to face former WEC champion Mike Brown and, showing a sick ground game, dominated the bout and won by points.

While Rani went to Hawaii to rest along with his family, that watched closely the fight in Texas, we’ve spoke with the coach Ataíde Jr., who was more than pleased with his pupil’s performance. “We have planned to fight the Korean, but the boy did a pretty good job on that fight. He knew Mike could catch him so he used his Jiu-Jitsu, which is his origin, and managed to block him. I thought it was a great fight”, praised.

Holding a professional record of 22 fights with 26 years old, Rani had a positive debut on the octagon after being defeated twice in a row on WEC, and his coach hopes more wins to come. “Rani is on the right track, he’s a professional. He’s a UFC fighter, not a Jiu-Jitsu athlete”, said, revealing that the “Korean Zombie” might be his next opponent. “He was talking to Joe Silva and I think he’s on the mood for the Korean”, concluded.
