Two-time Jiu-Jitsu world champion at black belt (2003/04) Daniel Moraes was the big winner at the Copa America Submission Grappling Championships in Lakeland, Florida.
Daniel, also no-gi world champion in 2008, defended his absolute no-gi title on Saturday, winning the heavily-anticipated rematch with TUF 6 fighter Matt Arroyo (Gracie Tampa), runner-up last year as well.
In the gi tournament, Rhalan Gracie was the highlight. Relson’s son won the title and was Relson Gracie Academy’s guiding light. Rhalan overcame black belt Mikey Gomez (Gracie Barra) with an armbar in the final.
