Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa (Soul Fighters) is another black belt star confirmed to participate at the next US Open, on the 15th-17th of October in Santa Cruz, California.

Lightweight bronze medalist at the 2009 Worlds, Formiga also had a good run at the Las Vegas Open, taking silver after a back-and-forth match with Rodrigo Teixeira.

Além de Formiga, quem também se inscreveu esta semana foi a faixa-marrom Angela Sauermann (Pitbull Jiu-Jitsu), mais uma favorita para o ouro.

Besides Formiga, brown belt favorite Angela Sauermann (Pitbull Jiu-Jitsu) has also entered the running for gold.
