NOVEMBER 2, 2023, RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL. Somewhat obfuscated by the IBJJF European No-Gi Open this weekend was one of the biggest events on Brazil’s gi circuit, the IBJJF Rio BJJ Pro, a professional tournament that awarded R$6,000 to its champions.

The allure of the prize money did bring out many big names of Brazil’s national circuit, particularly from Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, the strongest states in the country, regarding jiu-jitsu.

One of the stars of the event was black belt rookie Pedro “Bolo” Silva de Souza, an athlete who is rapidly gaining traction on the Brazilian circuit as one of the nation’s top middleweights. Pedro faced some of the top middleweights in the country this weekend, including Alexandre Jesus & Arley Pacheco. In the final Bolo submitted one of the dark horses of the event, Luiz Santos who himself had taken out one of the division favorites, Leandro Rounaud.

Equally entertaining was Pedro Machado‘s performance at the BJJ Pro. The heavyweight division was one of the toughest in the tournament with names such as Horlando Monteiro, Leonardo Lara, Leandro Carlos, Wellington Alemao, Vinicius Liberati, and Hygor Brito, to name a few. Despite the heavy artillery on deck, Machado cruised through the division with 3 submissions in 4 matches.

In the female division, it was Jessica Caroline who impressed the most. The Niteroi-based athlete faced Nathalie Touson and the rising roosterweight talent Giulia Gregorut of Fratres (formerly with Cobrinha).
