It was a night of partying for four-time world BJJ champion Romulo Barral. That’s because he saw some of his students come out as winners of the Championship Berkut World Grand Prix (ACBJJ), held last Saturday at Santiago Canyon College in California. Edwin Najmi took down the 75kg class, whereas world champion Gabriel Arges nabbed the 85kg. Each fought three times.
Najmi subbed Daud Adaev via flying triangle. Then he defeated two-time world champion Michael Langhi via decision. Finally he faced Marcio André, who had beat Davi Ramos, and managed to finish him via triangle.
Arges first beat Josh Hinger 3-0, then beat Arnaldo Maidana via triangle, and finally beat his three-time world champion teammate Otavio Sousa with a knee lock.
