2005 ADCC Marcelo Garcia vs Ricco Rodriguez (Followup to Aubrey Marcus' What is a Warrior?)

Back on Feb 12, I posted a poem on Warriorhood, if you missed it, please check out:

My friend, Derek H., pm'd me via Facebook that day the following message. Posted with his kind permission:

I loved the Warrior Poet piece you just did. I've heard and read his stuff before. It's awesome.
The last line of that last poem always makes me think of ADCC 2005 Marcelo Garcia vs Ricco Rodriguez.

Marcelo fought and beat his Giant. It ALWAYS inspires me.
I think you should do a follow up using this fight as visualization.

I thought that it was a great idea!

The last line of this paragraph from Aubrey Marcus' "What is a Warrior?" is what Derek was referring to:

" ...

A warrior fights for one reason alone: love. Love of life, love of what is good, love of family, love of tribe, and love of our infinite soul on the quest for impeccability. He lets love swell in his heart, flushing through every cell in his being until he cannot help but proclaim, like Cyrano De Bergerac, “I am going to be a storm -- a flame -- I need to fight whole armies alone. I have ten hearts! I have a hundred arms! I feel too strong to war with mortals. Bring me GIANTS!

My apologies to Derek on the delay in posting this followup!

This post dedicated to all the Warriors who have slayed their Giants as well as future Warriors who will slay their Giants; to Aubrey Marcus; to Marcelo Garcia and last but definitely not least, to my friend Derek!

Enjoy this David vs Goliath fight where Marcelo Garcia slays his Giant to show the Warrior that he is!

Have you slain any Giants lately? What are you waiting for?!?!
