AUGUST 29, 2020, last night the world saw the third edition of SUBVERSIV, Fight 2 Win’s Team vs Team tournament, which featured a superb line-up with some of the very best gi teams in the world today, who brought top-level players to the event.

This SUBVERSIV tournament has all the factors that made the Brazilian Team Nationals one of the most fun events to watch in the gi circuit, mixing the new generation of grappling with a few veterans and a healthy dose of team rivalry. Attesting to the tremendous entertainment value of the tournament was the submission rate witnessed at the tournament, as seen below:

45 matches, 29 subs = 64% submission-rate

Very high marks here for a top-tier tournament, an event that saw Gracie Barra’s Carlos Souza breakthrough as one of the sports leading athletes after his submission wins over John Combs and Samuel Nagai on his way to a gold medal with his teammates Kendal Reusing and Fellipe Trovo who looked equally impressive. Reusing submitted 3 out of 4 matches, Trovo submitted all of his wins, going 3-1 (lost to Gabriel Almeida in the semis but redeemed himself in the final with a flying triangle over Devhonte Johnson).

Two more names were at the forefront of the tournament, those of Jena Bishop (Alliance Gold Team) and Nathalie Ribeiro (Checkmat). Both athletes were the smallest competitors on the roster, yet, grappled spectacularly. Jena submitted 3 athletes, losing to Ribeiro in the 3rd place match by a razor-thin split decision, while Ribeiro was the only competitor to give Kendal Reusing a run for her money. Nathalie took Kendal to a split decision, a match that could have easily gone her way, even giving away a massive size advantage (at least 45 lbs) to her opponent after winning her first two by submission.
