This one really did come from the bottom of the treasure chest!
Straight from Youtube’s most obscure archives, the GRACIEMAG at the Jiu-Jitsu Pan Blog offers the medium heavyweight final from the 1996 Pan.
Ladies and gentleman, Roberto Roleta vs. Saulo Ribeiro broadcast over Brazil’s Sportv network with the luxury of commentating by Carlos Gracie Jr. direct from Manhattan Beach.
The bout is a classic from the early years of competitive Jiu-Jtsu and remains fresh in the minds of everyone fortunate enough to be there.
