At the last International Masters and Seniors tournament, on July 21, black belts Eduardo “Duda” Milioli (Rilion) and Adriano Silva (Barbosa) starred in the always-heavily-anticipated final between the best in the over-30-year-old division.
Duda, the winner of the match, spoke with GRACIEMAG.com about how he came to win the title:
“Man, I had three really tough matches. The first, against Fernando Soluço from Alliance, was one of the toughest I’ve ever had in the master division. Then, in the semifinal, I submitted my opponent and went through to the final against Adriano Silva, who I lost to recently. It was an evenly-matched contest that I won by referee decision,” he remarked, pleased with his gold medal. Check out the match below:
