Gabi McComb Biography

Gabrielle McComb Lima was born on October 03, 1997 in Manaus, capital city of Amazonas State on the banks of the Negro River in northwestern Brazil.

The first McComb family member to train jiu jitsu was Gabi’s older sister Andrea (who later opened her own BJJ academy). Andrea was training at the time with coach Alberto Valle at a social project led by the local police department, a group called Acadepol. One day Gabi tagged along with her sister and was almost immediately fascinated with jiu jitsu. Soon after this first contact with the sport, at the age of 8, Gabrielle joined the classroom.

Although Gabi did not seek a competitive platform at first, when she did McComb became fully focused on the local tournament scene, competing and training as often as she could. It was also through jiu jitsu’s tournament circuit that Gabi met Paulo Gabriel, She was 15 years old at the time. Paulo who became her partner for the years ahead.

As a juvenile blue belt Gabrielle’s career started taking off, it was also around then that she started training more often with her sister Andrea McComb – who promoted Gabi to purple belt.

In 2016 after very positive results competing as a purple belt, Gabi McComb met with Leticia Ribeiro and discussed the possibility of moving to the US. Ribeiro and her husband Fabrício Morango received McComb and her boyfriend Paulo Gabriel with open arms, starting a long lasting relationship with the Gracie Humaitá South Bay academy.

On June 2018, after strong performances competing in the brown belt circuit, Gabi McComb and Paulo Gabriel were promoted to black belt by coaches Letícia Ribeiro and Fabrício “Morango” Camões.
