Caio Terra, a roosterweight, has made his way back into the competition circuit. The black belt world champion has been out of the tournament scene due to complications with his health. While not completely healed or healthy, he couldn’t help the itch to compete and entered the 2014 IBJJF Chicago Summer Open on Aug. 9-10.

On Sunday, he entered the no-gi absolute and was able to defeat two opponents for the gold including an ultra-heavyweight in the final. The division held two fight for him which he won both by points. The first was won by 6-2 and the final was 11-4 in his favor.

Caio admitted he was exhausted but managed to push through the matches to do what he loves.
