Record of fastest Submission in Black Belt Finals
Rodrigo "Comprido" Medeiros is one of the few two-time World Absolute Champions, the first time, as a newly graduated Black Belt Rodrigo defeated two of the monsters at the time, Ze Mario Sperry and Roberto "Roleta" Magalhaes with a toe hold. This was the first time an Open Weight World final was won by submission and it demonstrated the amazing sporting period “Comprido” was going through at the time, confirmed later that year with his wins at the Pan American BJJ games and the “Brasileiro” (Brazilian National BJJ Tournament).
Since then Rodrigo has won other titles and relocated to Chicago, Il. where he is heading his "Comprido BJJ" Academy. "Comprido" has also started getting involved with the personal training of MMA fighter Mike Russow who opened the gates of Mixed Martial Arts to "Comprido", and also one of the biggest names, UFC Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.
"Comprido" will continue to flourish within the sport of jiu-jitsu and be one of the greatest ambassadors of the sport.
