The No-Gi Brazilian Nationals saw its maiden installment take place last year, and it crowned Murilo Santana the winner of the main division.
After closing out the middleweight division with Barbosa JJ teammate Tiago Alves, Murilo went all the way in the absolute. In the big decider, the black belt took down and then finished off Nilson Ricardo (Nova União) with an arm-triangle choke.
In 2010, at the second installment of the event, Murilo Santana will try to repeat the feat. The fighter is already confirmed on the competitor list.
The deadline for sign-ups is this Friday, so anyone who will be in or around Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on October 30 should hurry and sign up here.
