Tiago Barros is quite possibly the best featherweight on the planet who isn't yet a household name.
The Cicero Costha Black belt took third place at Worlds in June after besting one of the best grapplings of this generation in Gabriel Sousa from ZR Team, placing the 33-year-old athlete front and center on our must-watch list for Masters Worlds.

Barros won five matches on his road to gold, including a win over the formidable returning Masters Champ Osvaldo "Queixinho" Moizinho.
