Rafael and crew hosted this year’s edition of the Matshark San Antonio Open at Woodlawn Gym and it ended up being their largest tournament yet with over 400 grapplers showed up for a full day of competition.

The event also included prize money awarded in the black belt and expert classes so it drew some top names, including RGV’s Carlos Diego Ferreira (Team Ferreira) and Houston’s Jason Soliz (Third Coast MMA) amongst many others. Ferreira once again won the big prize money after competing in the finals against Alex Martins. For his part Martins fought injured (upper leg) but still did the best he could. Coming in third with his own strong performance was Jose Portillo of Paragon Austin. Meanwhile Soliz had perhaps the most technical matches of the day with his entertaining rolls versus Travis Moore and Albert Magno. For his efforts Soliz also won his share of prize money in the nogi expert division.
