One of the most exciting matches at the Pan American Championhip last year was the final of the black belt featherweight division. Rafael Mendes and Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles Maciel have squared off many times before, often showing off their expertise in the matches leading up. Last year the ending was a bit different than previous bouts, but go ahead and see what happens if you missed it.
