624

The second last IBJJF event in Brazil for the 2017 season, the South American IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship brought top talent to Barueri in its latest installment.

Erberth Santos snatched gold in the ultra-heavyweight and absolute divisions. He finished Antonio Assef (GFTeam) in the former, and in the latter edged out heavyweight champion Dimitrius Souza (Alliance) on advantages over a 6-6 tie on points.

This championship was a real test for me”, Erberth told afterwards. “I haven’t trained since the worlds — neither preparing to fight nor doing physical training — due to the opening of my gym. I was in doubt over whether I’d sign up, but my students pushed me, and it all worked out”.
