The UFC heavyweight, Gabriel Napao, returned to jiu-jitsu competitions with victories. The black belt took part in the super fight at Warriors in Combat, an event held last weekend and produced by his partner Marco Alvan. Napão defeated Gracie Barra athlete Roberto “Tussa” Alencar on points.
In addition to the super fight, the event featured an absolute submission GP, with a prize of two thousand and five hundred dollars for the champion and the big winner was Alexandre “Vaca”, who won his three fights on the night to take the title.
“Warriors in Combat is an event created by me and Napão and we entered into this to show that Jiu Jitsu also fills a concert hall. The event had nine submission fights and nine MMA fights, in addition to the Napão fight. The crowd approved! Our next event will be a submission GP under 77 kilos and we intend to bring big names”, said Marco Alvan. Check out the full results
