The São Paulo Open was held this month in Brazil, and one of its most interesting matches pitted Erberth Santos against Dimitrius Souza vying for the absolute title.

On one side, an Erberth who had failed to make weight for his division. On the other, a Dimitrius who had defeated Hebert Junior (Gracie Barra) earlier for the heavyweight title.

There wasn’t much time in the clash between the first and fifth places in the IBJJF’s rankings for the audience to get settled in. It ended with Erberth finishing Dimitrius with a bow-and-arrow choke in just over a minute.
