Athletes from all of Brazil gathered at Tijuca Tennis Club, in Rio, last weekend for the No-Gi Brazilian Nationals.
Alliance’s Dimitrius Souza was the heavyweight champion. He beat Victor Bomfim in the final. Then he took on the absolute field. After two tough fights with Bruno Leonardo and Kim Terra, he faced Max Gimenes and achieved an armbar.
At the women’s, Betriz Mesquita was the big winner. At middleweight she faced Adriana Martins, who usually plays at master-2 but decided to change it up. Bia won on points. In the open, Bia faced Jaqueline Oliveira. The Gracie Humaita star gave no chances and attacked fast. She swept, mounted, took the back and finished on the neck.
