Last Saturday, October 30, two big-name black belts went at it at Grapplers Quest, in Ontario, Canada. João Assis faced Saulo Ribeiro in a featured match at the event.
The CheckMat representative had beaten Xande Ribeiro at a previous Grapplers Quest event in July. This time, Assis managed to beat Xande’s older brother in a no-gi dispute.
The result caps off an excellent season for the black belt who this year has racked up a number of big wins, like his submission of Jeff Monson at the UFC Fan Expo.
Check out the video with some snippets from the match between Assis and Saulo:
