THIS WEEKEND we saw the final chapter of Copa Podio’s 5th season, the famous Heavyweight Grand Prix.  The promotion was one of the first professional outlets for jiu jitsu athletes a few years back, remaining today as one of the best platforms for up and coming talent to reveal itself to a mainstream audience.

This year’s HW GP gathered a few well known competitors, veterans of the Copa Podio spotlight such as Renato Cardoso, Fellipe Andrew and the American power house Jared Dopp while mixing one of the most promising athletes in the sport today: Kaynan Duarte, who was making his black belt debut.

Other rising talent also on the card was represented by a deluxe trio of brown belts which featured Fabio Alano (BRA), Devhonte Johnson (USA) and Bruno Lima (POR). Leonardo Lara on the other hand was an athlete brought forward last minute to replace Admilson Gobi, Lara who also made his black belt debut on the Copa Podio card after a stellar career as brown belt.

The heavyweight crown ended up falling on one of the promotion’s favorites – Fellipe Andrew, though the star of the show was likely Fábio Alano the brown belt student of Mário Reis at Alliance, Porto Alegre. Alano (nicknamed Kamikaze) had an amazing campaign throughout the tournament, making it to 3rd place after wins over Renato Cardoso, Devhonte Johnson and Bruno Lima. Below are the full results for the Copa Podio V, Heavyweight Grand Prix.
