Brazilian Nationals goes off!!!

The Brazilian Nationals absolute division just wrapped up at Rio de Janeiro’s Tijuca Tennis Club, and you can keep up with the action on Twitter. Follow masters @judsonborges and @fabiogurgel to find out what’s going on – with pictures and everything.

The open weight semifinals were defined at 4:40 pm. Sergio Moraes (Alliance) was matched with Nivaldo Oliveira (CheckMat), while Marcio Pé de Pano was set to face Léo Nogueira (Alliance).

In the first semifinal, Nogueira swept and passed the devilish guard of Pé de Pano, winning the battle by 5 to 0.

In the second, Sérgio Moraes started out by launching a foot assault and sweeping Nivaldo: 2 to 0. The CheckMat athlete did not bow down, returning the sweep and tying the score. Sérgio thus won by two advantage points to one, and the Alliance aces closed out the absolute. “But there’ll be more tomorrow,” said a vibrant Moraes, as he made his exit.

The four semifinalists survived a riveting 32-man absolute division. Sérgio secured his spot by submitting Ricardo Evangelista in the quarterfinals via triangle. Nivaldo made it past Augusto Ferrari. Now Pé de Pano overcame lightweight Leandro “Lo” with an armbar in the quarterfinals. Léo Nogueira is also having a good run, having overcome Theodoro Canal with a wrist lock.

Stay tuned to for more coverage of the Brazilian Nationals.

The Cauliflower Chronicles

When Marshal Carper broke up with his long-time girlfriend, he packed up his white belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and moved from rural Pennsylvania to Hilo, Hawaii to train at the BJ Penn MMA Academy.
The Cauliflower Chroniclesfollow Carper’s adventures and misadventures, both on the mat and around the island. He quickly learns that Hawaii is not the carefree paradise advertised in brochures and finds himself feeling like a foreigner in his own country. On the mat, he experiences Hawaiian fight culture from the inside, goes head to head with BJ Penn, and struggles to overcome injuries. Off the mat, he explores the Hawaiian Independence movement and the effects of colonization, battles with giant cockroaches and centipedes, meets a myriad of colorful locals, and travels the island in the bed of the Red Baron—a rusted 1986 Mazda pick-up truck.

At times sad, shocking, and laugh out-loud funny,The Cauliflower Chroniclesis a must-read for both sports fans and travel buffs, showing a side of mixed martial arts and Hawaii not available anywhere else.
