Day 3 of the 2013 Pan ended with some disbelief followed by an explosion of euphoria.

At first, lightweight Michael Liera Jr. did not know what to do when referee Muzio de Angelis raised his arm at the end of the adult male purple belt open class final.

To get to that point, Liera had 4 matches, with two submissions.

The final against Felipe Silva (Barbosa JJ) was very strategical and decided on the details.

Liera, who trains since 2011 at Atos JJ, in San Diego, with Andre Galvão, knew it was going to be tought: “Felipe has a very dangerous guard! It was the toughest moment of the absolute campaign”.

After analyzing the last battle, he talked about the emotion of fullfiling his dream of six years in the gentle art: “I was in disbelief! It has always been my dream to win weight and division at a big event like the Pan,” said Liera in a exclusive interview with GracieMag.com. 

After the triumph, it’s time for the brown belt?

“That’s up to my Professor Andre Galvão. If he thinks I’m ready, I’t will be an honor”, answered Liera, with caution.
