2013 World No Gi Champion Eduardo Telles
Eduardo Telles is a name you've been hearing for quite some time. Every time there is a major tournament, Telles, the creator of the "Turtle Guard' throws his hat in the mix and goes for it. Despite many years of competition major titles have somehow eluded him, he won the Pan in '07 but with his talents and dedciation one would have expected a string of majors. Perhaps it was because of his innovative style or something but Eduardo seem to fall short of his own goals.
Telles secures 1st place for his weight class. 2nd at open weight. He also took 2nd in weight class with the gi-which was real controversial. His opponent was awarded a questionable 2 points that costed him first place.
Robert Lopez moves up to a record of 2-0 by defeating Jorge Pineda in a light weight bout at the World Combat Series in Pacific Beach, CA. on Saturday 24th, 2013. Robert represents Team Figueroa and the 99 Jiu-Jitsu Team.
