Websters defines the term Juggernaut as: a massive inexorable force, campaign, movement, or object that crushes whatever is in its path. Perhaps that term is best when trying to understand what Orlando Sanchez accomplished at the 2015 ADCC Championships this year.

Sanchez, an underdog on most radar screens captured the 99kg championship and en route defeated perennial podium denizens Dean Lister, and Vinny Magalhaes. A huge upset in the minds of most, however Sanchez entered the tournament with a quiet confidence knowing in the end it would be his arm raised above everyone else.

Now riding the wave of his Abu Dhabi Combat Classic victory, Sanchez is primed to get his feet inside the UFC cage. There he can take his place in the Heavyweight division alongside his friend and teammate current UFC World Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum. Sanchez is just the latest animal released from the beast factory that is Kings MMA.

Orlando called in to the Brutally Honest Radio show to discuss his huge win at the ADCC, and to talk about whats next in his combat career. Make sure you listen in to hear his inspirational message, and how he became a champion in sports only after becoming one in life!

Brutally Honest Radio is hosted by Aaron Tru, Adrian Gallegos, and Jonathan King. The podcast is broadcast live each week from an undisclosed studio in Long Beach California. You can subscribe and download each episode on iTunes. Or you can listen on sound cloud.
