GMA member Paulo Tavares, from Australia, fears no challenge, don’t matter how big they are.
Last week he competed at the the Pan Pacific Championship, in Melbourne and came out victorious.
The thing is that Paulo competed on a weight categorie way above his regular one, as he tells us.
“I signed for to compete at the middleheavy but there were no athletes and they invited me to fight at the over 97kg division. I did not back down and submitted my two oponents in less than one minute and a half each with a leg lock and a choke from the back.”
Paulo thanks the help he got to win: “I would like to thank my sponsors Pacific Ink, AUS CAGE fight gear, thrive phisiotheraphy, ASN nutrition and Dave Moya personal trainer for all the support. My students and girlfriend that give me all the inspiration to train hard and kick some ass!! This is a victory that will help in my immigration and promotion to the gym.”
