Christy Thomas armbars Michelle Nicolini in the womens black / brown belt absolute division at the 2009 BJJ Pan-Ams.

I was unable to stay long enough to get the details of how the absolute division for the black / brown belt females on Sunday, but with major help from Alicia Anthony, BJJ’s best photographer we now bring you some information about how things went down!

  • Gabrielle Garcia (Alliance) defeats Jacqueline Andrade (Team Mica)
  • Michelle Nicolini (Drysdale JJ) defeats Fabiana Borges (Gracie Barra) via triangle choke to armbar
  • Katie Weilbacher (Alliance) defeats Luka Dias (Gracie Humaita) on points
  • Ana Laura Cordeiro defeats Penny Thomas (Gracie Humaita)
  • Michelle Nicolini defeats Katie Weilbacher on points
  • Gabrielle Garcie chokes Valerie Worthington
  • Christy Thomas (Relson Gracie) armbars Michelle Nicolini
  • Ana Laura Cordeiro defeats Sophia McDermott (Machado Jiu-Jitsu) on points
  • Ana Laura Cordeiro beats Gabrielle Garcia on points
  • Ana Laura Cordeiro defeats Christy Thomas on points to become the 2009 womens black / brown belt absolute division champion!

Gracie Barra’s Ana Laura Cordeiro has been invincible. Her accomplishments include first place in the 2008 BJJ Mundials, first place in the 2008 BJJ Pan-Ams, first place in the 2008 No-Gi World Championships, and many others. Anyone want to place bets on whether she gets her black belt this year at the Mundials if she wins again? How could she not!
