Saulo and Alexandre 'Xande' Ribeiro, two of jiu-jitsu's most storied competitors ever, took to the mats again last weekend at the European championships, and it's safe to say they are every bit as dominant as they ever were.
The pair employed flawless, old school jiu-jitsu where they sought to take down their opponents, pass the guard, and finish the fight. When the dust had settled, Saulo had finished two out of three opponents to earn his gold medal while Xande went four for four, opting to take home gold and silver after closing out with his student Gustavo Elias in the absolute division.
