In the final match, he faced Leonardo D’avilla.
Roberto talked about his achievement (and his students’) on Facebook: “I was so proud to see our students fighting today. It’s the craziest feeling in the world. From white to black belt, we have made many champions today, but beyond that, winning or losing, it was awesome how everyone stood together and had fun on the mats like a family! I even got to be The Miami Open Absolute Champion. What a great day!! Now, many mistakes to be corrected and lots of training to be done….Tomorrow, regular training at FS!”
Also in the adult black belt division, the champions were: Daniel Beleza (light-feather), Gustavo Carpio (feather), Denis Pinto (light), Vitor Oliveira (middle), Ricardo Rezende (medium-heavy), Pedro Santos (Gracie Elite), Todd Culler (super-heavy), Roberto Abreu (ultra-heavy).
At the team competition, Alliance came out on top (224pts), Gracie Elite finished second (192pts) and The Avengers completed the podium in third (191pts).
Bruno Malfacine, who led the eagle team in Florida, also wrote about it on Facebook: “I’m so happy and proud of all Alliance warriors who came here today and gave their best! Thank you everyone, all the athletes, all Instructors and Master Romero Jacaré for the opportunity.”
