Sergio Moraes and Claudio Calasans are two of the most respected Jiu-Jitsu champions coming out of the Brazilian city of São Paulo.

Sergio is today part of the UFC roster. Calasans carries on firmly in his career in the gi—and is one of the highlights of GRACIEMAG issue 190.

This Sunday, GRACIEMAG revisits a striking encounter between the two aces, a classic battle between powerhouse teams Alliance and Atos Jiu-Jitsu in the 2011 European Open final.

Sergio Moraes lost the final of his weight class to Bráulio Estima, and any hang-ups over it would have cost him dearly at open weight.

To witness and take part in European Championship history, you’d better rush. Sign-ups end on the 16th. Click here to register for the tournament on the IBJJF website.
