Sao Paulo WPLL

In Brazil the Alliance Team did a great job in the WPLL. The WPLL is a professional tournament that was held this past week end in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The tournament featured more than $30 000 in prize money. There where 9 finals in the black belt division and of those 9 Alliance had 4 champions. Bruno Malfacine won the rooster finishing all opponents by submission, Lucas Lepri won the light weight division. Sergio Moraes the medium heavy. Bernardo Augusto won the heavy. Furthermore, Sergio took second in the absolute after a very controversial final against Alexandre Sousa.

All these competitors were in Atlanta training before the last World Championship this past July and all will be back in 2010 to visit us again.

Congratulations to Fabio Gurgel and all of our Brazilian teammates on another excellent performance! This result leaves us with high expectations for next years tournaments.
