Luan Carvalho (Nova União) x Michael Langhi (Alliance) 2015 Brasileiro (Semifinal)


Unless you are very plugged into the tournaments going on in Brazil right now last weekend featured the 2015 Brasileiro tournament which is kind of a big deal.  Unfortunately unless you were there or have been able to see some of the posted matches it's a bit difficult to stay on top of the results.  One match that jumped out at me as very impressive is that of fairly new Black Belt Luan Carvalho (Nova Uniao) over Alliance powerhouse Michael Langhi!  Note this was a semifinal and a real nail biter but most did not expect this result.  Luan would go on to win the division and I can imagine this is the biggest win of his career.  I would definitely keep an eye on this prospect in the Leve (Light) division at future events!
