The inaugural Metamoris Pro event had the Jiu-Jitsu fans who watched live in San Diego, California, or over the internet captivated last Sunday, for the riveting supermatches held under rules whereby neither points or advantage points determined the winner.
With stars of the gi packing the match areas and stands, the event proved to be a bona fide Jiu-Jitsu clinic, like in the main event between Marcus Bochecha and Roger Gracie, where the current world champion even got hold of the Gracie’s arm and nearly tapped him out as the match drew to a close. Roger again showed why his defenses are considered some of the most solid in the sport.
The three winners of the night were Kron Gracie, Rafael Lovato Jr. and Caio Terra, each awarded an extra 5,000 dollars for getting a tapout before the 20 regulation minutes were up.
