Big Mac comments on South American Championship performance

Share it
After snatching gold in both his weight group and the absolute division at the Miami Open, Luiz Felipe “Big Mac” Theodoro went on to win again, this time in Santa Catarina, Brazil, at the South American Jiu-Jitsu Championship. The black belt tapped three opponents to guarantee gold in the ultra heavyweight division.
“In the final I faced a local athlete (Roberto Piazza), who was really strong. But your heart goes into the final, right? It was really cool and I managed to apply two takedowns and pass guard. I just didn’t agree with the result in the absolute, but I can’t go questioning it, because we should never leave it in the hands of the judges. But it was worth it, I was satisfied with the ultra heavyweight title,” says the fighter.
“It was my first time at a South American Championship and found it to be really well organized. It’s another important event from the CBJJ,” he adds.
Back full steam in the competition scene, Big is looking ahead to more international titles in 2010.
“I’m going in to one in Sao Paulo, at the WLPJJ. I was out of some events because I’d hurt my knee. But next year I’m going for all the main championships overseas, the European, the Pan and the Worlds. I want to conquer the world title at black belt, which is an old dream I haven’t yet fulfilled,” said the Godoi Jiu-Jitsu representative in closing.
