In yet another historic night, BJJ Stars 4, held last Saturday, in S√£o Paulo, promoted great matches. In the main event, multi-champion¬†Leandro Lo¬†confirmed his favorite status¬†and defeated¬†Isaque Bahiense¬†after a ten-minute ‚Äúwar‚ÄĚ to win the middleweight GP, in addition to the 100,000 reais prize.¬†Isaque, runner-up, took R $ 30 thousand.¬†In the co-main event, Gabi Garcia returned to the Brazilian mats with a gala performance against Cl√°udia do Val.

The ‚ÄúFight of the Night‚ÄĚ award, it is worth mentioning, went to the victory of Bia Mesquita over Thamara Ferreira by 4 to 0 on points. The ‚ÄúSubmission of the Night‚ÄĚ was with Dimitrius Souza, who strangled the tough Rafael Lovato Jr.

The final was an extremely eventful fight.¬†Leandro Lo tried to pull Isaque Bahiense to guard at times, but the Dream Art fighter defended and responded with intensity.¬†So the confrontation remained.¬†In the final seconds, Leandro tried a takedown and won an advantage. In the same move, Isaque sought the opponent’s neck, but failed.¬†After drawing 0-0 on points, Lo won by an advantage and won the Middleweight GP, in addition to the 100,000 reais prize.¬†The result also shows the ‚Äúnew phase‚ÄĚ in the career of the multi-champion from S√£o Paulo, who has claimed to be even more focused.

Gabi Garcia has gala performance

Early in the fight,¬†Gabi Garcia called to the guard and worked her game with calm and patience. Cl√°udia do Val¬†tried to defend herself as she could, but little by little the Alliance’s black belt dominance was expanding.¬†The points were earned when Gabi took his back.¬†Shortly after, he passed the guard and, in the final stretch, took his back again to open 11-0 on his return to Brazil.
