APRIL 2, 2017 and the battle for European No-Gi gold has finally ended, a 3 day event that gathered the top no-gi talent from the old continent ( athletes such as Darragh O’Conaill, Luca Anacoreta, Adam Wardzinski, Muslim Patsarigov, etc) and some of the most exciting international athletes of today. Competitors such as Hiago George, AJ Agazarm, Thiago Sá, Isaque Bahiense and of course Mahamed Aly.

Arguably the most stacked brackets of the tournament belonged to the heavyweight division, which featured former ADCC champ Pablo Popovitch, rising Polish talent Adam Wardzinski, No-Gi Worlds runner-up Thiago Sá and ADCC veteran Jesse Urholin. With every match being a war of attrition, the final goal went to Checkmat athlete Sá, student of Ricardo Vieira.

Returning to the win column was also AJ Agazarm. The Gracie Barra talent had a controversial final yesterday at the Rome International Open (gi), which he lost to Jake Mackenzie by 2 points. He didn’t let that cloud his judgement, returning strong to the arena today with solid performances which earned him gold at lightweight and silver in the absolute. Among his impressive matches, one has to include an incredible 44×0 victory over Andreas Perales (light semi final).

Isaque Bahiense continued proving himself as one of the more serious threats to a world title at middleweight this year. The young Alliance black belt conquered his 1st European No-Gi title as well as a 1st place in the Rome Open (while conquering also silver in the absolute).

The man of the hour, however, was Mahamed Aly. The Brazilian super-heavyweight, and member of Team Lloyd Irvin managed to impose his impressive game winning both his weight and the open weight classes. This double is added to his other gold medal (yesterday), making a total of 3 titles for Aly this weekend.

On the brown belt division one must reference Gabriel Almeida. The young athlete from Checkmat RJ (Fight Zone) won another double gold today, which he added to yesterday’s double at the Rome Open. A total of 13 matches and 13 wins in Italy by the youngster who looked on point and a serious talent to look for in the future. Aggressive, with good takedowns, submissions as well as a top and bottom game the 24 year old is set for great things in this sport.
