Rafael Mendes | My Legacy

“I’ve dedicated the past 16 years of my life to jiu jitsu. Because of this art I had the opportunity to travel the world, meet people that I never thought I would meet, and compete against the previous champions that inspired me to push myself harder everyday. I've won the world championship 6 times, ADCC twice and cemented myself as the greatest featherweight of all time. There's nothing left to prove. Some may see this is a an end, but for me it's the beginning of something new. The same dedication and passion that I put towards my competition career will now be refocused to other aspects of my life." - Rafael Mendes
