This year the star of the whole event was Terere from Alliance Jiu Jitsu. He won both is division Middle Weight and the Absolute Division. Pe de Pano also won his division and these to gold medal winners ended up meeting in the finals of the Absolute. Terere was able to beat Pe de Pano by two points in the final. Pe de Pano was very upset because he felt his last second sweep was good before time ran out. Other notables that won are Jefferson Moura from Gracie Barra, Paulo Lepiodo from Ryan Gracie, and Roberto Tozi from Godoi/Macaco. Marcio Feitosa has a very close fight that ended very controversially against Rodrigo Antonio from Nova UniÃ£o.
