An Epic Battle in Chicago

San Clemente JiuJitsu double leg

 

GB San Clemente Black Belt, Flavio Almeida Wins Double Gold in Chicago

It was 10 minutes only but it felt like at least half an hour. The back and forth between Gracie Barra San Clemente’s Head Instructor Professor Flavio Almeida and the Black Belt from UGF Vitor Nunes were nerve racking to say the least. This was the final match of the Adult Black Belt Open Weight, the most glamorous match of any BJJ tournament.  Both athletes were there to give all they had for that gold medal.

Professor Flavio Almeida started with a take down on the very first minute but had a pretty severe knee injury trying to defend the reversal from the other Athlete. Our head instructor dropped in pain and the match was interrupted so the doctor could examine Flavio’s knee. After being informed by the doctor he possibly had a torn MCL, Flavio decided to keep going. From then won it was a Jiu-Jitsu war.
