This Sunday the BJJ Professional Cup showcased two supermatchups: Bernardo Faria faced Raphael Abi-Rihan and Kron Gracie went up against Yan Cabral.

In the first of the two matches to grace Biella, Italy’s Lauretana Forum gymnasium, world champion Bernardo Faria went on the attack against Raphael Abi-Rihan, pulling guard and achieving sweeps on three occasions. Abi struck back with a sweep of his own, showing it would not be a one-sided affair, but Bernardo sealed his victory by achieving back mount.

Kron Gracie started off the action against Yan Cabral with a single-leg takedown. He then forced past his opponent’s guard and achieved back mount, from where he finished with the choke.

The event’s founder, Mario Villela, himself donned a gi for a match, which he won by landing a takedown and finishing with a footlock.

A BJJ Professional Cup trouxe, neste domingo, as lutas casadas entre Bernardo Faria e Raphael Abi-Rihan e Kron Gracie contra Yan Cabral.

Na primeira das disputas no ginásio Lauretana Fórum, em Biella, Itália, o campeão mundial Bernardo Faria não fugiu do seu jogo contra Raphael Abi-Rihan. Tratou de puxar para a guarda, de onde conseguiu raspar três vezes. Abi também respondeu com uma raspagem, mostra de que estava vivo na disputa, mas Bernardo pegou as costas e sacramentou de vez a vitória.

Kron Gracie iniciou com uma queda, ao agarrar uma das pernas de Yan Cabral. Em seguida, toureou na passagem de guarda e correu para as costas do oponente, de onde apertou com um estrangulamento e finalizou.

Idealizador do evento, Mario Villella tratou de vestir o kimono e também se apresentou para o público. Aplicou uma queda e finalizou com uma chave de pé.
