MARCH 19, 2017 was the last day of the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) Pan American Championship, a time when the black belts returned to the mats to finish the work they started on the previous day. Sunday started with the 1/8 finals matches and went all the way to the finals, crowning this year’s Pan Ams champions.

As per usual the tournament was not short on big upsets and exciting matches. One of the bigger upsets came by way of black belt newcomer Cleber Sousa, who defeated the current champion Michael Musumeci in the 1/4 finals. A student of Caio Almeida, Sousa fought bravely throughout the tournament, losing to the experienced Tiago Barros in the semi final.

One of the notes worthy of mention was the success of the Almeida JJ athletes at black belt adult. The small team from Sao Paulo, who competes internationally for Atos, placed a few of their athletes at the top of their respective divisions, including Bianca Basilio (champion), the aforementioned Cleber “Clandestino” Sousa (3rd) and Erberth Santos (champion).

One of the big stories of the day was the rise of Isaque Bahiense. The middleweight prodigy from Alliance was in tip-top shape, taking out many high level athletes who ventured in his path. The biggest name he defeated in the competition was the legendary Romulo Barral, in the semi final, and though he ended up short of a gold medal due to Otávio Sousa’s top notch game, he certainly revealed himself as a big player in the division.

An interesting quarter final was that between newcomer Admilson Gobi Junior and veteran Ricardo Evangelista, for the ultra-heavyweight division. Although Evangelista was up on points by the end of the match, Gobi locked a tight triangle to which Ricardo refused to tap. When the referee stopped the match as the clock ran out, Mr Evangelista seemed to be confused as to his whereabouts. All evidence pointed to Evangelista having passed out due to the choke and so the victory was awarded to Admilson.
