Batista or Lepri? Your New IBJJF Euro Black Belt Champions Are…

Results continue to make their way out of Lisbon, Portugal, where the 2019 IBJJF European Championships have been underway all weekend. Some notable moments stood out immediately: lightweight Lucas Lepri’s tear through the heavily weighted Absolute division (though he ultimately took second in a loss to Gustavo Batista); Mayssa Bastos’ continued rise in her victory over Sabrina Gebrelli; Rudson Mateus’ comeback win versus Gabriel Almeida after 2018’s disappointing Euros loss; and Ffion Davies’ choking her way to gold over Gabi Fletcher, one of only two submission finishes in the female black belt competition.
