    Rodolfo Viera vs Leandro Lo at the World Pro.

    First time in a long time anyone other than Buchecha has swept Rodolfo. I remember watching it live and not paying as close attention to the time as I thought I was, as a big Rodolfo fan I was freaking out that he might lose to Lo because Lo was up by 2 points and had pulled guard again. I knew Lo had given Rodolfo a hard time with his guard at Copa Podio so I thought he had a good shot at winning.

    Watching it afterwards I realized that there were still 2 minutes left and Rodolfo was able to pass and submit soon after that. :redface:

    It felt closer than it actually was.

    Out of all the matches that took place this year ... you pick a one sided ass kicking? Sooooooo many matches come before that.

    Watching BJJ almost always bores me to death but Royler and Bravo was exciting because of the story line

    Didn't expect Bravo to out grapple Royler

    Got an advantage. It was close he used his giggler sweep. Rodolfo's but hit but he popped right up, so much power!

    I guess we can go ahead and just label it as Twenty-boreteen then.
