    Here's a video of Derek Picinich (Karel Pravec Black Belt) vs Sergio Moraes (Multiple time World Champion)
    YouTube - Derek Picinich vs. Sergio Moraes at $1000 Grapplers Quest Absolute Advanced 2010 US Nationals

    I was infitinitely impressed with Derek's performance against a 3x World Champion.. he went on to take home Silver that day, dominating in the semi finals and losing a very close finals..what do you guys think?


    Derek trains at Silverfox BJJ in Lodi, NJ along with 2009 ADCC Silver Medalist Jerry Rinaldi (lost to xande in finals by 2 points)

    He won the World's once out right when he beat Bill Cooper, & you can count the one Vs Marcelo as another. Sergio looked sluggish compared to when he fights with the gi, but Picinich performed really well, in his face, & his guard retention was really good.

    He looked real good. And as everyone has said, Sergio looked a little uneasy.

    I saw this video a few days ago, and yes I was very impressed with Derrick's performance. Who did he lose to in the final?

    You may jest, but is all too common for people to try to claim a world championship title when it was:

    -won at a lower belt
    -won at masters or seniors
    -won at the copa do mundo
    -won at the cbjje mundials
    -a closed out bracket with 1 or more teammates and they had taken silver or bronze
    -a combination of all of these.

    Sergio could claim silver at the rock/paper/scissors world championships tho.

    I don't get why Sergio doesn't get 2 points for once he gets out of the heelhook, he obviously went from bottom to top?
