(Video) Meet Wilson Reis

Matt Cava and I went up to Trenton, NJ this past Saturday to check out Combat in the Cage. As I’ve said before, there are a lot of fighters who compete for Ed Hsu’s Combat in the Cage/Extreme Challenge Northeast that you’ll be seeing on the big shows in the not too distant future.

One of those fighters I have no doubt that you’ll be seeing more of is Wilson Reis.

Despite being on 22, Wilson is already a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu and is an instructor at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu United in Philadelphia. I train at BJJ United when I have free time, which is almost never, but I’ve attended a few of his classes and his skills are sick.

Below is video of his second pro fight from this past weekend’s event. He’s in the red trunks and you’ll notice that his opponent, Diego Jimenez, doesn’t get much offense in. Well, Jimenez is a strong fighter who trains out of Anthracite Combat Club in Minersville, PA with pros such as Jim Bova, Jon Murphy, and Shane Ott. Basically, Jimenez is no joke and Reis was able to earn a win in impressive fashion against a quality opponent.

    I’ve rolled with Wilson personally and let me tell you everything Sam says about him is true. He is unbelievable on the mat.

  • dizzle says:

    guy def. has skills…hows his stand up?

  • Sam Caplan says:


    I’ve yet to see Wilson in a situation where he needed to test his standup.

    I do know he’s been working hard at it and has spent some time training with Kru Rigel Balsamico at Philly MMA/MFS.

    I think it’s only a matter of time until you see Wilson fighting on TV.

  • Jeremy says:

    definitely looked good Sam. Very aggressive with his jiu-jitsu as well which i like. He constantly moved on the mat, and used punches and submissions which are nice to see. Keeps the pace up-tempo and his opponent flustered. I like what I saw from him.

  • Jim Bova says:

    This isn’t the video of Wilson Reis vs. Diego Jimenez. That video is from another fight. Here is the video of Diego vs. Wilson. In this video, Diego is in black trunks. Wilson is in red. Can I embed HTML in comments?
