João Gabriel, Otávio Nalati and Max Gimenis share the podium. 

Big names in competitive BJJ met in the U.S. to try to grab gold medals and some prize money last Saturday at the 4th installment of the New York BJJ Pro.

João Gabriel Rocha, Tayane Porfírio and Felipinho César were among the standouts. At ultra-heavy, João Gabriel Rocha of Soul Fighters bagged another gold for the season. He defeated ferocious Otávio Nalati of Lloyd Irvin, bagging 4,000 dollars in the process. Natali won 1,000 dollars for his runner-up campaign. You can see their fight here:

Keenan Cornelius reigned in the heavyweight division. A recent addition to Atos, he took on Tim Spriggs, a former teammate of his at Lloyd Irvin, in the final, which you can watch here:

Middleweight Felipinho César of Barbosa JJ beat Manuel Ribamar (NS Brotherhood) for gold in that division.

The women’s section had prize money only in the absolute division. Sitting world champion Tayane Porfírio extended her long winning streak to earn 1,500 dollars as she outplayed Nathiely de Jesus (Cícero Costha).
