I know they both won, just not sure how. Trying to find out more details.
Congrats to them, its awesome how they get on the mat to compete so often.
Wasn't pablo fighting lucas lepri in a superfight? Does anyone know all the superfight results
Awesome, can't wait to see the video!
From mma junkie:
Abreu outpoints Gracie at UFC Fan Expo; Popovitch, Hall, Thomas also win | MMAjunkie.com
While Gracie enjoyed a decided advantage in size, Abreu's blend of speed and power left the pair scrambling all over the mat. Three times the match had to be restarted as the action carried into the barriers around the contest surface.
Abreu had Gracie in trouble in multiple occasions as he took the back briefly before threatening with a few serious triangle choke and armbar attempts. Abreu also looked close to ending the fight on a toehold, but Gracie survived the attempt and turned it into his own highlight by attacking his opponent's leg and nearly landing a submission.
Abreu escaped from the attempt and moved to top position. An obviously frustrated Gracie settled onto his back, and Abreu cruised to the decisive win.
Meanwhile, Lepri took his contest with Popovitch on short notice as a replacement for an injured Gregor Gracie.
Popovitch took an early lead on a seemingly harmless takedown, but the remainder of the matchup settled into a neutral battle. Lepri worked mainly from a seated position while looking for armdrags and sweeps. Meanwhile, Popovitch tried desperately to pass his opponent's guard, but his opponent was up to the challenge.
Neither competitor could successfully implement their preferred attack, and the evenly-matched contest resulted in a 2-0 win for Popovitch.
Thanks for the news!
I went 4 for 4 again! I don't miss with these superfights baby!
Cyborg is my hero.
I wish I lived in Miami so I could train at Cyborg's
Isn't Lepri much smaller than Popovitch?
I wanna see these. I can't post new threads, but check this GQuest match where Sonny Nahara goes 35-0 and then finishes the match. CRAZY. I'll reply when I can find links to the superfights.
CYBORG FIGHT SIDEWAYS
lepri fight is on first page!
I didn't like the write up in the article compared to what I saw live. I think Rolles had him real close on a couple of kneebars and had the better end of the toeholds. That being said props to Cyborg on a great match.
Also Popovitch had Lepri outweighed by a substantial amount and he really held his own. A little slower of a match but still entertaining.
