Bruno Malfacine at the Mundials.
Team Alliance, run by Fabio “The General” Gurgel and Romero “Jacare” Cavalcanti, can add another heavy hitter to its roster of superstar grapplers. Or, depending on how you look at it, a not-so-heavy hitter.
According to this report on BSB Combate, rooster weight Bruno Malfacine has left his old team Gama Filho to become part of Alliance, the team which captured first place in overall team results at the 2008 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Championships.
At the BJJ World Championships, Bruno Malfacine earned third place in 2008 and first place in 2007 in his weight class.
Malfacine joins a stacked Alliance roster which also consists of the renowned jiu-jitsu competitors Tarsis Humphreys, Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles, Chris Moriarty, Gabriel Vella, Marcelo Garcia, Sergio Moraes, Lucas Lepri and others.
