Espen stretched Jaakko Vilander’s arm to win gold.

Espen Mathiesen, the Norwegian black-belt representing team Kimura, has left his mark in the competitive scene once more, this time at the IBJJF’s Dublin Open, held early this month in the Irish capital.

A bronze medalist from this year’s World Championship, Mathiesen again put his dangerous guard to the test as he faced Jaakko Vilander in the middleweight final.
