Looks like the current 76.9Kg champion, Pablo Popovitch wont be travling alone. He will be accompanied by head instructor at his academy in Pembroke Pines, FL and training partner, Vagner Rocha. He recently won the ADCC North American Trials on Saturday,November 20th in the -76 Kg division. However getting there was not an easy task. Vagner had 5 fights total, 4 by submission, a triangle, anaconda choke, armbar, and even taking a page from the current champs arsenal finishing his 4th fight by Pablo's feared "gogozeira" choke. In the finals he went up against friend and training partner, Tony Tipton, and came up spades in end winning on points!
Vagner wanted to thank his sponsor Brawl and Maul for their support, and Pablo Popovitch, and all of his teammates and students at Team Popovitch and Avengers!
