Gutemberg Pereira
For the second straight weekend, Brazil hosted a qualification tournament for the ADCC Submission Fighting World Championships with five men and two women earning their spots in the world's most prestigious grappling competition, scheduled for later this year in Las Vegas. Standouts on the men's side included Fabricio Andrey who lost at last week's trials but took no prisoners this time submitting all his opponents en route to capturing the 66 kg class.

Winner of the 99+ kg division Gutemberg Pereira also won all his matches by submission displaying a heel hook heavy game. Roberto Jimenez captured the 77 kg division, while Alexandre Jesus took the 88 kg class and Henrique Cardoso the 99 kg category.

Mayssa Bastos, despite being outsized, was the standout on the women's side taking the 60 kg division while 19-year-old BJJ purple belt Giovanna Jara pulled a shocker by taking the 60+ kg class.
