With Bruno Bastos at the helm, Nova União was the big winner at the Dallas Open, promoted by the IBJJF on May 8. The title was extra added motivation for Bastos to keep up the good work he’s doing in Texas. Last week the teacher promoted mixed martial artist Travis Lutter to third-degree black belt, handing the fighter his stripe along with a diploma from the IBJJF.
The next open events on the IBJJF calendar will only come after the Worlds, promising more big matchups between Nova União and the rest of the biggest teams on the planet. Who’s going to win the Rio Open, Las Vegas Open and Chicago Open, in July and August?
