Rafael Formiga has been on a roll in competition in the USA this year, having won gold at the Boston Open and Chicago Open. Last Sunday, the black belt scored another two medals, this time at the Freestyle Grappling Open in Maine.
“I closed out the Gi absolute and No-Gi absolute with Diego Gamonal of BTT. We closed out because we trained a lot together back when I was in the BTT. I had three matches in the gi and got the tapout in all of them,” Formiga told GRACIEMAG.com.
“I sunk a forearm choke in the first, the second was against Dan Simmler and I subbed him with a choke from back mount in a minute and a half, and the third was against Renan Borges, who I caught in an armbar in one minute and twenty seconds,” he elaborated.
