  1. I especially enjoyed watching Diego Borges fighting out of Manaus, BR. Lots of good athletes coming out of that city.

    Interestingly, on your #20 (Marinho vs Chico), GracieMag is calling it a DQ due to "gestures to the public". Chico must have been frustrated because the GFTeam fans' jeers were enough to make him stand up with 20 seconds or so left and give them 2 middle fingers (I was sitting right next to the GFTeam contingent).

    Anyway, GracieMag should have their results accurate since they were one of the main sponsors. If not, hopefully Copa Podio will publish their own official results soon.

    Until then, I've summarized the results published by GracieMag into tables and organized them by phase here.
