Last Saturday, Paris hosted the VIC, a traditional European submission wrestling tournament. Inspired by the setting being the French capital, friends Pablo Popovitch and Jeff Monson won at weight and closed out the absolute.
Pablo won the under 84 kg division while Monson took the over 96 kg one. In the under 75 kg division, Marcelo Bocão was the winner. In the under 66 kg, our GMA Anderson Pereira took the gold.
“These days this tournament is the biggest grappling tournament in Central Europe, and folks came from all the countries. Each division was worth a thousand Euros, and the absolute paid 1,500. I’d won it twice in the past, this time I made it three,” said Anderson.
