CRUZ WINS TRIP TO KOREA TO HEADLINE 2019 COPA DE MARIANAS

The 2019 Copa De Marianas took over the Phoenix Center Saturday with a trip to compete in the 2019 Marians Pro in Korea on the line.

The 2019 Copa De Marianas took over the Phoenix Center Saturday with a trip to compete in the 2019 Marians Pro in Korea on the line. This particular event didn’t feature any world-class black belt matches, unlike their previous few events, instead highlighting Guam’s competitive brown belt divisions.

Carlson Gracie’s Anthony Cruz was the days biggest winner after climbing out of fight fights to claim the 176-190 lbs brown belt champion as well as the open belt champion, securing his trip to compete in the 2019 Marianas Pro.

The Gracie team also made a big splash by taking home the overall team title, which had been previously dominated by the Purebred team.

Here’s the full results and photos from the weekend below:
