American Dustin “Clean” Denes of Brazilian Top Team showed that he has some of the same stuff. Completely addicted to Jiu-Jitsu, Dustin Denes left his family, and a degree in Business Administration to come to Brazil and learn Jiu-Jitsu. “I started training at Carlson Gracie Miami, but my life really changed when I met Rodrigo Minotauro Nogueira. He brought me to Brazil and I decided to live to learn Jiu-Jitsu. So I went to live in Brazil,” says Dustin, nicknamed by a Brazilian coach as CLEAN.
As soon as he got to Brazil four months ago, Clean started to train all day long. “I train with Brazilian Top Team fighters in Murilo Bustamante’s academy from 11 to 3 o’ clock, then I take some açaí (fruit sorbet) and go straight to de la Riva’s school for hours of training, late afternoon into the night.”
Dustin is known for recording all of the details of his training sessions. “He has everything he does in the computer,” says Antonio Rogério “Minotouro” Nogueira, twin brother of Minotauro. Rogério shares an apartment with Dustin in Rio de Janeiro.
After four months of training really hard, Dustin got a big gift….the Brazilian national title in the brown belt open weight division. He won the bronze medal in the category; he defeated two opponents, and lost to Erick Wanderley in the semi-final. Dustin ran after the GOLD on the last day of the competition. To get there, Dustin choked out two highly respected fighters; first, Anderson Leal, then Marcelo Garcia (Alliance) in the final. Check them out here!
