Bruno Malfacine made quick work of Rafael Pereira in his second MMA bout at Friday night’s Brave CF 11 card in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The nine-time jiu-jitsu world champion didn’t waste any time as soon as the fight hit the ground, taking Pereira’s back and attacking for the rear-naked choke before going for the armbar that forced the tap at the 3:18 mark.

Malfacine now holds a 2-0 record with a pair of submissions. In his MMA debut, Malfacine finished Romario Boaes in 94 seconds at Shooto Brazil 74 in August 2017.
