It was three weeks, three tournaments and many battles, but Felipe Pena "Preguiça" achieved all his goals. Earlier this month, he kept his ACB Jiu-Jitsu belt in Kazakhstan, then he fought three times to become the three-time Marianas Open champion, in Guam, and closed April conquered his fourth World Pro title last weekend in Abu Dhabi, becoming one of the tournament's biggest winners.
"I made seven fights in Abu Dhabi. There were three in the selective and four in the main event. During the whole event I only took two points. I am very happy with that fourth title in Abu Dhabi," said Pena, who is already looking at his next appointments. "I was very pleased with my performance and now I look forward to fighting the IBJJF's Worlds and ACB Jiu-Jitsu. I just have so thankfull for everything that has been happening in my career."
After winning the triple crown with high-profile performances, Pena will now have a month to focus exclusively on the IBJJF World Championship, which takes place in early June in California, and then once again take action for the Russian ACB Jiu-Jitsu event.
"There were three championships in three weeks. It was very good to pick up the pace for the Worlds and also for the ACBJJ that will roll in June in Moscow," concluded the black belt.
