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!
