30 Aug Megaton, Mário Sperry, Titi and more winners from day 2 of the World Master Championship
On its second day, the World Master Jiu-Jitsu IBJJF Championship welcomed another throng of eager veterans. Friday saw the contests from the age groups from master 3 through master 7 play out in Las Vegas.
BH Rhinos leader Cristiano “Titi” Lazzarini won heavyweight gold under the Gracie Barra banner. Adult world champions Omar Salum (Gracie Humaitá) and Cássio Werneck (Cassio Werneck BJJ) won the light featherweight and lightweight titles respectively.
Fabiano “Pega Leve” Scherner nabbed the gold medal at ultra-heavyweight. In the open division, Viktor Doria (Fight Sports) reached the final and defeated Roberto Godói (G13).
Karlona Hipólito (Top Brother), who is used to competing among adults in Brazil, beat both the women’s super-heavyweight and absolute fields.
Zé Mario Sperry topping his fellow master 5 athletes.
Extending its tradition of fearless undersized fighters, Gracie Humaitá took double gold with Wellington “Megaton” Dias. An athlete who’s been competing at the adults’ and the masters’ world championships since the inception of each, the proud father of Mackenzie Dern first beat the featherweight field. Then he took on the giant Zé Mário Sperry for the absolute title, and swept him twice.
Also, Carlson Gracie representatives Zé Mario and Luis “Bebeo” Duarte won the super-heavyweight and ultra-heavyweight titles respectively.
Clayton Almeida (Zenith), Marcus Buchecha’s old man, walked out with gold in the ultra-heavyweight division.
Below are the World Master Championship results, updated after the end of day two.
