    Carlos Gracie Jr., The President of the Confederacao Brasileira de Jiu-Jitsu presents the Pan Americans every year. This year the event was in Florida again making it difficult for the West Coast fighters to make an appearance. However there were a lot of Brazilians there and the fighting was top notch. What can you say about this tournamnet other than Margarida! That guy was on fire, he tapped out everyone! In his match against Fábio Leopoldo he rolls off the mat to escape a great knee bar and comes back to win it. Against Fabio he proved just how strong he has become, using a cross choke to win. We didn't make it to the Pan Ams this year due to bad timing and the very high cost of travel. Luckily our team of dedicated supporters made it and we were able to share some great footage. The footage is clear, most of the fights are the full fight and there are a lot of submissions on the tape. The tape is two hours long and contains 15 Black Belt fights and 1 Brown Belt fight slipped in there too. Here are a list of matches that are on the tape. Black Belts Jorge "Macaco" Patino vs Garth "The Mountain" Taylor Jorge "Macaco" Patino vs ??? Fernando "Margarida" Pontes vs Fabio Gurgel Fernando "Margarida" Pontes vs Fabio Leopoldo Fernando "Margarida" Pontes vs ??? Roberto "Gordo" Correa vs Alexandre Ribeiro (Saulo's Brother) Bruno Severiano vs Fernando "Terere" Augusto Bruno Severiano vs Haroldo Bunn Fernando "Terere" Augusto vs ??? Sandro "Batata" Santiago vs Fernando Lopes Sandro "Batata" Santiago vs ??? Wellington "Megaton" Dias vs Takao Tadeu Tani Cristiano Ribeiro vs Fernando "Terere" Augusto Brad Jackson vs Eduardo Leitao Two unidentifiable Black Belts in a great match where one gets hurt bad. Brown Belt - Daniel Moreas in a match too good to leave off. We didn't shoot any of this footage so we would like to thank Team Renzo Gracie, The Legends Crew, Ryan Gregg and of course Team Ralph Gracie for the footage.
