2004 CBJJO World Cup
88 kg Semi-Final
Salvador Bahia, Brazil
Ronaldo Souza vs Bruno Bastos
Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza is a mainstay here at MFM because every match he has ever done is usually exciting. The enclosed match is no exception.
His opponent, Bruno Bastos, has been an active Gi and No Gi competitor in adult and masters level competitions for almost 20 years. He is also of Oswaldo Fadda lineage. Oswaldo was one of the “non-Gracie Family” members promoted to black belt by Mitsuyo Maeda.
As for the CBJJO World Cup, Jacare was on a tear that day. He submitted the side in the 88 kg category, then went on to take the absolute.
Don’t blink while watching this clip.
Enjoy Ronaldo vs Bruno.
