ROH posted an interview with wrestler Josh Woods who is currently preparing for his first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu match in years and that’ll take place on October 6 in Orlando. In addition to balancing Combat Sports and pro wrestling, he is also a Criminal Justice major close to obtaining his degree. The winner of the 2017 ROH Top Prospect Tournament has been training for this fight since August and talk balancing all three of these important aspects of his life:

My training partner and best friend, Seth Petruzelli, is a really skilled black belt and he just beats the dog [crap] out of me every day. My training partner is one of the best in the world. I would equate it to training for pro wrestling with Jay Lethal or the Briscoes.
