NOVEMBER 27, 2016 – the famous Ginásio José Correa venue in Barueri (Sao Paulo) witnessed an epic 3 days of competition, where the best in South America battled for the crown of continental champion.

In the black belt open weight division, many anticipated a duel that is quickly becoming a modern day classic, between Erberth Santos (Almeida JJ) and Victor Honório (GF Team). Two athletes who made history in the lower belt divisions of the sport (where they faced 6x), having since maintained a heated rivalry that often transpired to jiu jitsu’s media.

The match did happen, and it was as heated as expected. Both athletes came out strong early on, with Erberth earning two advantages within a minute. Immediately the Almeida JJ athlete tried to slow down the pace of the match and manage his lead. This may have cost him dearly, as with 3 minutes to go Honório increased the pace by asserting one of his trademark acrobatic guard passes, earning a match changing 3 points. Santos tried desperately to come back, having his guard passed again in the process. In the end Honório became the open weight champion.

In the female division many hoped to see the sport’s biggest star Mackenzie Dern compete in the open weight against the up and coming stars of the sport, Nathiely de Jesus and Tayane Porfirio. Dern didn’t dissapoint and put in brave performances on her way to the final, where she beat Barbara Gomes and the much larger Joaquina Bomfim. In the final Mackenzie threw everything she had at Tayane Porfirio, who survived the initial onslaught to put on a clinic against Dern. Defeating the Gracie Humaita prodigy by 20 points.
