While some of the biggest stars in the Jiu-Jitsu world grappled at Metamoris Pro in San Diego, California, Rodolfo Vieira too donned his battle wear, but in the Brazilian capital of Brasilia, where he hit the mats in hopes of winning a brand new car, the prize on offer at Rockstrike Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

While the car was the award for winning the black belt absolute, there was an equally untouched motorcycle on offer for the brown belt open weight champion. The winner of that contest was Jackson Souza, a CheckMat representative, who made it past three adversaries to get his new bike.

In the black belt division, Rodolfo outpointed Tarsis Humphreys by 16-0, and in the final he took on Kim Terra, Caio’s brother.

After passing guard and mounting, the GFTeam star tapped Kim out with his trademark armbar from mount, finally getting his coveted car.

“Thank God I managed to win and get the car. It didn’t go as I’d hoped, which would have been to close out with my bros Jake Mackenzie and Ricardo Evangelista, but this time it wasn’t to be. The important part is that the car goes to GFTeam! This one’s for you, Uncle Júlio, like I promised. I hope you enjoyed watching me compete,” the mat wizard posted on Facebook.

Rodolfo also won the ultraheavyweight division, while Tarsis returned to his winning ways at heavyweight.
