LEANDRO LO | BJJ LEGEND

Leandro Lo Pereira was one of the top Jiu-Jitsu competitors in the world. A black belt under Cicero Costha, Leandro Lo, was well-known in Brazil for some time. In the US, however, he was relatively unknown until he defeated Michael Langhi in April 2011. This was the first time Langhi suffered a defeat in 3 years! Leandro Lo would beat Langhi again and win the Mundials, Pan American Games, Brazilian Nationals, and just about every tournament he entered. He firmly established himself as the king of the lightweight category.

He then moved up to middle weight, winning Copa Pódio and taking home many absolute titles. He would go on to win in 3 other weight divisions, which will likely never happen again in our lifetime. He won 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019, and the 2022 Jiu Jitsu World Championships. 

In 2022 his life was cut short, but his legacy lives on.
