Pan’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Predictions
Many of the World’s top Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitors are on their way to California to compete at the largest tournament in the World – Pan’s.
Coach Phillipe Gentry has put together his picks for the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Adult Black Belt Divisions.
Black Belt Rooster: Caio Terra
I hate to go against my team but, Bruno Malfacine is coming off a pretty bad shoulder injury and Caio Terra has been tearing up the competition scene lately. Not only that his camp is stacked with some tough dudes including Leo Lo.
Black Belt Light Feather: Gui Mendes
Black Belt Feather: Rafa Mendes
This will come down to a Cobrinha vs Rafa Mendes final and Mendes will take it. Again, I hate to go against my team but, this fight will boil down to age. Rafa is the younger more explosive fighter right now.
Black Belt Light: Lucas Lepri
Lucas will beat Zach Maxwell to win the first half of the bracket and Michael Langhi and Gabriel Goulart will close out their side of the bracket. That’s right folks, I’m picking Gabriel Goulart to beat JT Torres. Look for an Alliance 1st, 2nd and 3rd in this division.
Black Belt Middle: Leo Lo
This is a really exciting bracket. I see Leo Lo beating DJ Jackson in the finals.
Black Belt Medium Heavy: Andre Galvao
This Brazilian Jiu Jitsu division is going to come down to a hard fought final between Romulo Barral and Andre Galvao. Galvao will take it.
Black Belt Heavy: Lucas Leite
Black Belt Super Heavy: Bernardo Rocha
Black Belt Ultra Heavy: BUCHECHA!!!!!!!!!
Adult Team Trophies will go as follows:
- Alliance BJJ will win First Place
- Atos will win Second Place
- Gracie Barra will win Third Place
Unfortunately, I will not be able to be out in California this year with my team but, thanks to Budovideos.com and their live Pan’s Broadcast I will be able to cheer everyone on while watching the best BJJ in the world from the comfort of my couch.
