Felipe “Preguiça” Pena and Luiz Panza did Brazil proud in the Absolute Championship Berkut’s 16-man GP, held Saturday in Warsaw, Poland. They each defeated three opponents to become under-95kg and over-95kg champion, respectively.
Preguiça started out by submitting Igor Silva via guillotine. Then, in a semifinal, he beat Poland’s own Adam Wardzinski on points. In the final Preguiça was pitted against Erberth Santos; Preguiça walked away with the title after taking the back and applying the bow-and-arrow choke.
Luiz Panza kicked off his campaign by finishing Moku Kahawai with a heel hook. Then he caught Ricardo Evangelista in a knee bar. The final saw Panza take on Alexander Trans, and Panza ended up with a decision win.
