Three-time roosterweight champion Bruno Malfacine capped off a perfect year with more gold at the World Cup Jiu-Jitsu championship in São Paulo last Sunday. In the final, the Alliance rep defeated another world champion in Pablo Silva (Gracie Barra BH)
“It was a tough match with lots of sweeps. I was behind on advantages up until the last minute, but I managed to sweep and make it 6-4,” says the “Bad Boy,” who had a total of four fights.
Malfacine has even higher hopes for 2011.
“Everything went perfectly in 2010. I won the Euro, the Pan, Brazilian Nationals, Worlds, and all the Fepa events, including the World Cup. I hope 2011 will be even better. I’m going to check myself in at the academy!”
And his preparations for the coming season have already begun.
“I’m training hard for the European. I’d like to thank God, Fabio Gurgel, my physical conditioning coach, and my sponsors. Without them none of this would be possible,” he says in closing.
