Watch all the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu action straight from the Kaiser Permanente Arena at Santa CruzWatch now
There was a lot of noise in the bleachers for a semifinal. And it wasn't only because Guilherme Rocha and Joao Bisnaga are decorated athletes. The main reason was that the semifinalist of the other side of the bracket were DQ'ed. Thus, their match would mean gold.
Guilherme began in a fast pace, but Joao calmed him down and didn't take too much time to set up an omoplata and open the scoreboard. Rocha kept being the aggressor but Joao Pedro was more precise and held a foot lock that finish the match with 3:29 left.
The curious thing is that both BJJ athletes are staying at the same place while in California. #BrazilianJiuJitsu #brotherhood #BJJ #2016BJJWorlds
