On November 17 the annual Rickson Gracie Cup unfolded in Tokyo, Japan for its 2013 edition. Our GMA members Guilherme and Rafael Mendes entered the competition and earned two gold medals with outstanding performances.
Guilherme won the featherweight division, Rafael won the lightweight division and the pair closed out the open weight division alongside Roberto Satoshi.
All of their fights were determined by submission finishes.
Check out some videos from their instagram @mendesbros.
