Post Worlds 2012 Hangover

As if we didn't get enough of Worlds (assuming you watched the live stream) Budovideos has released a couple more matches worth watching.  For those of you that didn't watch the stream these are two matches that you don't want to miss.  Xande Ribeiro has had a bit of a resurgence over the last few months.  His win against Andre Galvao at the Abu Dhabi Pro Trials was a BIG ONE.  Although he didn't win in Abu Dhabi it definitely put everyone on notice that Xande is back.

Marcus "Buchecha" Almeida has been an absolute killer since receiving his black belt.  Last year at the Nogi Worlds he dispatched of most opponents quickly by submission.  Going into the Worlds 2012 Absolute final he was considered the heavy favorite but many were proclaiming Leo Nogueira of Alliance would give him a great match.
