Very nice! I have never seen this before.

super fun match to watch

They both pulled guard! I didn't think that happened before 2010. 

Was this from the Copa Pacifica?

Bearstare - Now that I think about it, I think this was both Rener and Ryron’s first match as black belts and that’s why there was a lot of buzz about it. I could be recalling wrong and I believe you trained with the brothers so you would know more than me. Anyway, reminds me of a different time in Bjj.

yep Copa Pacifica 2003

Nice. Ryron did better than I was expecting. Great match
