Romulo Barral returned to the middleweight division for the first time in 14 years at the IBJJF 2017 Pan Championships.

The 5x world campion looked to be in top form and won his first two matches via submission, but unfortunately hurt his arm while defending a takedown from Isaque Bahiense.

Still in visible pain, Barral waived off the medics and completed the the match with every intent to win, but was unable to score on Bahiense who went on to win by 2 points.  We will update on the extent of injury when more information is available.  

EDIT:  3/20 1:00pm PST A source from Romulo's camp has confirmed that there Barral fracture his arm.
