I know for certain Javier Vazquez is a good instructor of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). A few years back I went to the Fitness Expo in Pasadena, California, and he was there teaching a beginners seminar in BJJ. The stuff he was going over was very basic, but the way he went over the small nuances was amazing. I knew he was not only a BJJ instructor, but also an MMA fighter and I wondered how good he was.
Javier is a veteran MMA fighter and recently fought in the WEC. Unfortunately, his fight did not make it on the PPV, but the Versus channel has made the fight video available. If you watch the video, you will notice it is almost a 101 on how to avoid taking chingasos while fighting a hard-hitting opponent. His takedowns and ground game were textbook. I highly suggest studying this video if you are a fighter, fan of MMA, train in MMA, or just want to see an entertaining fight. It will also answer the question "Can Javier Vazquez Fight?"
