Fighting at the IBJJF’s South American Championship, held last weekend, Horlando Monteiro of GD Jiu-Jitsu managed to put all of his technique to practice successfully, and his reward was a double-gold campaign.
To shine in the medium heavy division, after advancing through his bracket and reaching the final, he had to beat Eric Medeiros. With a sharp guard game, Horlando worked from the bottom, bringing danger to his opponent’s position. Eric was paying attention to Horlando’s attempts, but one quick move caused a crisis: a precise triangle attack had the potential to end the match.
Eric defended as he postured, but his body’s position wasn’t enough to stop Horlando from adjusting his legs, reversing with the move locked in place and applying pressure to bring it to its conclusion. Check it out here:
