The second day of matches at the 2016 World Jiu-Jitsu championship had the open class divisions of the purple belt as highlights.
Vicotr Hugo Marques made to the top of the male purple belt division with two gold medals. First he won the superheavy and then marched to the final of the open class against Fabio Alano. One sweep was enough for Marcques to secure the gold medal.
In the female division, Gabrielle MCcomb Lima first won the featherweight and then went on to finish Amanda Cintra very early into the final with a impressive bow and arrow choke.
The Friday also had the female blue belt division, won by Amelia Lui, who outscored Jocelyn Stidham 4-0 for the title. Lui finished second in the heavyweight division.
