Fighting at São Paulo BJJ Pro early this month, Fellipe Andrew shone again. But to win gold as well as a check for 4,000 reais, the Zenith representative had to find an interesting finish.
The final match in the heavyweight division, pitting Fellipe against Ruan Oliveira (Soul Fighters), was pretty challenging. Wise to Fellipe’s attacks from the guard, Ruan worked on top from the stacking position, with both hands on Fellipe’s pants, without exposing himself to triangle attacks.
What Ruan wasn’t expecting was an adapted version of a triangle: Sneakily, Fellipe puts his cross hand on Ruan’s collar and sets the triangle. Without help from Ruan’s shoulder, Fellipe’s cross hand creates the necessary adjustment to apply pressure. Click the play button below to check out this creative solution.
