Otavio Closes out Weight & Absolute: Jiu-Jitsu Expo

As I predicted
, (along with calling Rafael, Kron, and Kyra), Otavio Sousa had an amazing day at the Spring Open/IBJJ as part of the 1st World Jiu-Jitsu Expo.

From Graciemag: he closed out his weight category with teammate Claudio Mattos and then closed out the absolute with teammate Romulo Barral.
Otavio hails from the Gracie Barra gym I trained at whilst in Brazil (GB Pernambuco).

Some previous posts/videos of Otavio Sousa can be found Here, Here, and Here. Between this and his showing at the IBJJF NY Open (he won weight and absolute at Faixa Preta as well), he is certainly as I predicted way back when he was a Brown belt at the Mundials, one to watch.

Here's a link from over at Graciemag where he talks about the upcoming Worlds/Mundials.
Come to think of it between the Expo, the Pans, and now the Worlds, this has been a great several months for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Grappling.

Happy Trainingz!
