|Phil Thorn||Adult||Intermediate||Ultra Heavyweight (215+ lbs)||1st|
Phil Thorn rematerialized in North Carolina for the US Grappling event held in Morrisville. Phil went undefeated for the day, winning three Gold medals including the Open division 1st-place medals for the Intermediate No-Gi and and Blue Belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. In the Blue Belt weight class, there were no other Ultra Heavyweights so Phil was unable to get four!
It was a dominating victory. Phil was unscored upon and won via Rear Naked Choke, 2 Armbars (1 from top, 1 from guard), and 7-0 in the No-Gi divisions. His Gi opponents were also unable to score on him as he won there by Bread cutter choke, 5-0, 3-0, and 2-0 in the finals. He exhibited good takedowns, taking all his opponents down that did not pull guard immediately, as well as a variety of different submission holds. Eight wins to no losses – Not a bad day’s work!
Great job Big Phil!
