Long time friend of OTM Buiú closes out Absolute at No-Gi Brazilian Nationals!

    Thu, 2011-11-03 07:40 — Gracie Magazine

    This Saturday at Canto do Rio Club in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro state, the No-Gi Brazilian Nationals unfolded. Among the standouts of the competition, Gracie Barra duo Kleber Buiú and Frederico Zaganelli won their respective weight divisions and closed out the absolute.

    In action at medium heavyweight, Buiú took on Roberto Gordo black belt Victor Bonfim. Victor started out well, but Buiú adjusted a foot attack and pulled off the finish. It’s the second year in a row that Buiú wins the event.

    Now Espírito Santo native Frederico Zaganelli defeated Antonio José (Gracie Humaitá) in the super heavyweight decider. Zaganelli dominated the match and sunk an arm-and-neck choke to win on points. In the absolute, he celebrated team victory by shutting out the final with Kleber Buiú.

    In the middleweight final, Murilo Santana (Barbosa JJ) attacked Sandro Vieira’s (CheckMat) foot for the gold. Leandro Lo (Cicero Costha) took on the game Theodoro Canal (GFTeam) in the lightweight final and added yet another title to his mantel. Meanwhile, Bruno Bastos (Nova União) again showed why he’s at the top of the heap, earning gold at ultra heavyweight.

    Some of the others who made it to the top of the podium were Herbert Mitchell, younger brother to world champion Gilberto Durinho, winning at featherweight; Thiago Teixeira (Marcio Rodrigues) overcame Felipe Costa (Brasa) in the light featherweight final; Marcus Adriano (Gracie Barra) won at roosterweight; and Mauro Celso earned further points for GB by beating Nilson Ricardo (Nova União) in the heavyweight decider.
