“Lively, highly technical and back-and-forth. Rodolfo started out landing a sightly throw on Lovato. The former tied things up with a sweep and then, in the waning moments, landed yet another, of the same variety (catching his opponent’s neck in his arm). By the time Rodolfo tried to launch a comeback, time had run out. Finally someone this season has managed to stop the seemingly unstoppable Rodolfo Vieira.

Here is an expert from GracieMag on the match at the Abu Dhabi Pro Jiu Jitsu Championships No Gi (nogi) 92+ Kg division.

“The match between Xande Ribeiro and José Junior (over-92 kg final) was an interesting one too. Junior stumps anyone who doesn’t know him. He’s not muscular, seems to be quiet and introspective, but when once he’s in the match area he gushes gas and technique. On Friday he caught aces Lucio Lagarto and Gilmar Oliveira off guard. This Saturday, against Xande, he put up a tough fight, but was unable to withstand the consistency and experience of Saulo Ribeiro’s younger brother. Xande took the divisional title by a score of 5 to 2.”At the Abu Dhabi Pro Jiu Jitsu Championships No Gi (nogi).
