-9:30 Ok good afternoon or good morning guys. We are live!

-10:00 At the moment we have purple belt masters male and female going on. Not too many famous people at the moment but will let you know when more famous people come up to fight.

-10:05 The black belt adult Male and female will start in about 4 hours looking forward to watching that one
i will detail all the matches as they go through

-10:25 Some great matchups to look out for for today and tomorrow:
Mike fowler vs Renan Borges in the first round of featherweight
Justin Rader vs Rafael Mendes
Guilherme Mendes vs Bruno Malfacine if they mboth make it to the finals
Ciao Terra vs Brandon Mullins

-10:53 Other great match ups to look out for:
Flavio Almeida vs Fabio Leopolda in black belt masters
Zach Maxwell vs Leandro Lo if they get through their first matches in Leve
Lucas Lepri vs Zach Maxwell/ leandro Lo

-11:00 -In brown belt: Jordon Schultz (world champion 2011) vs Francisco “Sinistro” Iturralde (Alliance)
There is a bit of a history here as Jordon was a star pupil of Jacare Cavalcante and Cobrinha at Alliance Atlanta. Well Jordon left Alliance for Lloyd Irvin. Sinistro is now training full time with Cobrinha. Both of them are champions and are fighting each other in the first round.

-11:07- I’m also looking forward to seeing Stephen Martin from Gracie Barra UK (Braulio’s Student) who the European’s this year at brown belt lightweight, and last year won the brasileiros at purple. Maybe we will see Stephen vs the winner of the Jordon Schultz/ Sinistro encounter.
-The black belt Open class adult will start in 3 1/2 hours from now!

-11:25 Other great potential match ups: in the middle weight: Victor Estima vs Marcos da Souza
Kron Gracie vs the winner of Victor Estima vs Marcos da Souza if they all make it through their first matches
-Some purple belt just pulled a crazy flying triangle on mat number 6!! Wow!

-11:29 Abmar  Barbosa vs Clark Gracie in the first round of middleweight is going to be great. Both are great Guard players

-11:40 A great possible final at middle heavy would be Romulo Barral vs kayron Gracie
Looking forward to seeing Yuri Costa Simoes in his first BJJ comp as a black belt! Simoes has won most medals you can win at the major championships in the lower belts and with his teammates Antonio Carlos, Joao Assis and Marcus “Buchecha” all campaigning at heavier weights and other larger players such as Paulo Tarcisio absent, he will be looking to make an impact here.

-11:45 Purple seniors are up at the moment. Some of these guys are very fast for athletes in their fourties!
-The Absolute black belt will be coming up in a few hours. Rodolfo Vieira, the reigning Pans Absolute champ (and indeed reigning Mundials and World Pro Gi double champion too) is absent and the absolute title is up for grabs. Bernardo Faria may fancy his chances of another double gold to add to his 2010 titles, but with no Nogueira, Peinado or Moraes in the field, hehas little in the way of support from Alliance. Checkmat must surely be favourites for this title if Assis, Buchecha, Trans and Antonio Carlos all enter.

-12:00 Rafael Lovato Jr has just confirmed that he is competing but at heavyweight only. He won’t be competing in the absolute.
-12:25 Kenny Johnson, a famous US wrestler is ragdolling his opponent. Great takedowns and top control.
Brown Belt Masters has started!
-12:48 The same wrestler Kenny Johnson won his third match but much less convincingly.
-13:15 Kenny Johnson wins his division. Great wrestling!
-13:45 It’s been confirmed that Rodrigo Caporal will represent Atos in today’s Black Belt Absolute. The guy’s a beast. he beat Romula Barral, last year at the Worlds.
THE BLACK BELT ABSOLUTE IS STARTING IN 1 HOUR!!!
-14:15 Kron Gracie is competing in Absolute! starts in 20 mins!
-Abmar Barbosa, Bernardo Faria, Victor Estima are all competing in the absolute and are warming up.
– 15:00 We will put up the absolute brackets in a bit. Still waiting for black belt absolute to start!
-15:31, black belts are being called. Here are the adult black belt absolute brackets:

Bracket1/4
Bracket2/4
Bracket 3/4
Bracket 4/4

-15:45: Marcos Buchecha destroys his first opponent! Finishes him with a armbar in 1:30 mins. Impressive and very physical!
-15:52 Victor Estima finishes his first fight by cross choke!
-15: 57 Gabbie Garcia smashes her first opponent with a cross choke from the mount.
-16:09 Abmar Barbosa is up. His opponent Daniel O’Brian is super tall, American guy with long red hair. Abmar pulls of a crazy helicopter sweep! Leads 2-0. ABmar wins 4-0.
-16:10 Luana Alzaguir wins her first with a triangle.
-16:22 Kron Gracie is up next! His opponent is David Gill of Popovitch Jiu-Jitsu. Kron pulls guard. Kron sweeps, and passes guard. He mounts and collar chokes!
– Buchecha goes through , again beats his opponent very fast. very impressive!
-16:30 Bernardo Faria, pulls guard and sweeps right away, passes, mounts and armbars. too easy.
-16:40 Murila Santana vs Rodrigo Caporal. Caporal just got out of a tight choke.  Santana armbars Caporal!
-Barret Yoshida wins his first match.
-16:50: Alliance is leading the team results for the moment by 40 points, but many of their stars are missing through injuries or TUF Brazil (Marcelo Garcia, Michael Langhi, Sergio Moraes)
-3,200 competitors are registered this weekend.
-17:05 Bernarda Faria in his second match, he is passing the guard with the over under pass, very tight. Bernardo gets the back and mounts. he’s up 16-0, and wins by submission.
-Victor Estima is up now in his second match, Wow got his Estima footlock!
-Comprido Medeiros is up. And moves forward.
-17:20 Kron Gracie’s second match, against Ricardo, a big guy from GF team., with judo game. Rickson Gracie is matside coaching Kron. Ricardo sweeps to mount! Kron gets a good mount escape. Ricardo is up 6-0. Kron pulls off a straight foot lock!!! Wow! That means Kron faces Victor Estima next!
-Abmar Barbosa now against James Puopulo from Lovato’s. Populo is up 2-0. He is now up 9-0. James Populo beats Abmar Barbosa!
-Flavio Almeido goes through.
-Marcus Buchecha against Mujrilo Santana. Buchecha is on fire today so far. Buchecha sweeps from guard to back mount, body lock.
-Fabio Leopoldo is through beating Soluco. Next fight wil be against Flavio Almeida.
– Kron vs Victor Estima! Victor is DQd after a 45 seconds on a leg reaping as both of them were going for a foot lock. How disappointing, we wanted to see a great fight. Oh well maybe tomorrow since they are in the same weight class.
-17:40 Flavio Almeida vs Fabio Leopoldo in Masters. Two legends! Flavio is dominating and smashing up 5-0. Flavio Almeida wins on points.
-Bernardo Faria vs James Puopulo.Faria gets the back and chokes Populo out!
-Antonio Carlos is through and will face Bernardo Farias.
-18:08 Kron is facing Marcus Buchecha. 2-2 so far. Fast pace in the beginning. both are stuck in the 50/50. I think Buchecha just broke his finger. 4-2 for buchecha.4-4 now. Kron has 1 advantage lead. Buchecha kneebars Kron! It was a great fight. So Kron takes 3rd place , very good for a small guy.
-Last absolute match of the day, Bernardo Faria vs Antonio Carlos. Faria up 2-0. 2-2 with 2 mins left. 4-2 to Antonio Carlos! Bernardo gets him in Omoplata! But too late Antonio Carlos wins 4-2 against Bernardo Faria. What an upset!
-So the absolute black belt final for tomorrow will be Marcos Buchecha vs Antonio Carlos and Gabi Garcia vs Luana Alziguir.
– Right guys it’s 3:30 AM here so I’m off to bed. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for the brown belt adults, and the Black belts! OSSS Goodnight and thanks for tuning in!
