 Opening round Pablo Alfonso(brown belt) beat Jarrod Card(brown belt) 8-4. Pablo used a good arm drag to single to score a take down. Used great top control staying safe. Pablo Scored with two take downs and two guard passes if I remember correctly. Jarrod had a sweep and went straight to the back of Pablo in the closing seconds to get his four points.
I went against Tony Christodoulou purple belt/ pro 155 mma fighter in the first rd. Got the win on points 8-2. Hit a lat drop straight to side control. Took his back, then lost control and ended up on bottom. Got back up hit a far knee block and ended the round in Tonys half guard.
In the final I lost to Pablo in overtime. We traded take downs in regulation 2-2 . Pablo pulled gaurd at the begining of overtime and with a minuter left I broke his gaurd open, was trying to pass when he went to all fours. I got greedy and went for his back, had the harnest and was looking to put in a hook but Pablo turned into me and got top position. Had tons of fun, first grappling tournament Ive done in years. The link to the video of the finals.

 I was thinkning about doing NAGA the 17th but Davie sounds like a much more enjoyable drive than Orlando. Shoot me an email maybe we can get Pablo to give me a rematch.
