  1. Portlands own Fabiano Scherner ended up taking 1st adult heavyweight backbelt no gi, 1st absolute (open weight) adult blackbelt no gi, and 3rd adult heavyweight blackbelt gi. Not bad for a guy 38 years old!

    Also competing from Portland were Hilliary VanOrnum who took gold in womens adult heavyweight blue belt and bronze in the womens absolute blue belt, and Tom Palmer who took silver in seniors blue belt division.

  2. Nice Photos! Braga Neto was going for that choke right when the fight ended, can’t wait to see these guys on the Pan Ams.

    @Tom we have some of the fights at BJJFights
