World BJJ champion Bia Mesquita has been spending some time and claiming some necks in the U.S. After fighting in California, the Gracie Humaitá representative headed to Vegas looking for gold at the IBJJF’s American Nationals.
She walked out with double gold last weekend, but not without first taking on Nívia Moura (Ribeiro JJ) in the middleweight final. With her complex guard and a sweep, Bia took Nívia’s back. From there, without placing the hooks, she attacked anyway and succeeded in choking her foe just over a minute in. Watch it in the video below.
