The 2016 Prospect of the Year: Thalison Soares
Prospect of the Year: Thalison Soares
Blue belts need to be extra special to attract the attention of the international jiu-jitsu community, and Thalison Soares is very special indeed.
Owner of a gnarly guard and a quiet work ethic that has carried him to the top of many podiums, Soares is a product of the PSLPB Cicero Costha, the same team that produced the hyper-famous Miyao brothers.
Thalison Soares just completed his second year as a juvenile competitor and will now compete in the adult divisions, an opportunity for him to live up to the promise of being named FloGrappling 2016 Prospect of the Year.
