Alliance was crowned five-time world champion team at the 2010 Worlds, with Gracie Barra in second and CheckMat in third.
It was definitely and unforgettable world championship for Romero “Jacaré” Cavalcanti, who received his red-and-black belt certificate from the IBJJF under the spotlight and to applause all around, along with Sergio Penha and Maurição Gomes, Roger Gracie’s father.
After over 31 years as a black belt – the only criterion in becoming a red-and-black belt –, Romero put in his request for the certificate at the IBJJF, and today he finally received his new belt in the USA, at an emotion-filled ceremony, which would certainly have made Jacaré’s master, Rolls Gracie, proud.
Congratulations to all. And live long and prosper, Master Jacaré!
