Keenan Cornelius: Lloyd Irvin's newest protege
Awhile back, I posted about Lloyd Irvin's latest protege: Keenan Cornelius.
Click HERE for a piece about him over at Grappling Weekly.
This was before I watched him win all 7 of his purple belt/faixa roxa matches at the Pan by submission.
This included a lightning fast armbar win over one of the Miyao brothers from 50/50...a position that guy with all the berimbolo madness of him and his brother is pretty familiar with.
He spent last weekend in Abu Dhabi tapping out Marcus Tinoco in the purple belt final.
Previously, he rounded out 2011 by winning a Grapplers Quest No Gi Advanced Division.
He then won the Euro 2012 at weight and the absolute, and the Pan Ams at weight and the absolute.
Say what you will, but doing all that in 6 months time is impressive.
