Superfight Braulio Estima vs Jacare de Souza
A lot of feeling out from the two as to be expected. Time limit is unknown, could be 10 minutes or 20 minutes. Work from the collar and elbow Estima with the first takedown by single-leg resulting in a scramble and back to the feet. No points can be scored in the first half of the time period. Shot of I believe Rickson Gracie looking on from the crowd.
More feeling out from the two. I wonder how Jacare is feeling just 2 weeks removed from his 25 minute decision loss to Luke Rockhold.
Estima again tries to shoot in and stays low scrambling for a leg but Jacare fends it off fairly easily. Estima on bottom looking to grab a leg for a sweep, Jacare contemplates dropping back for a leglock but chooses not to and now looks to hand fight and perhaps pass Estima's half guard.
Jacare stands and Estima looks like he might be going for De La Riva. Jacare is able to swim inside and clear the legs of Estima. Jacare now standing away from Estima on his back. Pause in action as perhaps an accidental kick to Jacare's ribs. Jacare goes back inside Estima's open guard and then back to standing looking to pass. Very defensive measured game so far.
Estima is looking for an armdrag but can't get anything going off his back with Jacare defending well. Estima looked to sweep and then changes to a leglock attempt but Jacare gets out. Estima butt scooting towards Jacare who partly engages. Still no score zone for the time limit which I guess means it's a 20 minute match. Estima continues to follow Jacare around and Jacare tries to pin down a leg without opening himself up to being off balanced by a sweep.
Estima scoots in to look for half huard, changes to inverted guard looking for a sweep but Jacakre fights to hold Estima down and sprawl out enough to avoid being swept. Estima gets a foot and sweeps but Jacare pops right back up so no points scored. Estima continues to hunt for leglock control from the bottom. Estima has a figure-four grip on the leg but is too high for any finish, tries a sweep again. Jacare stays on his feet with Estima still scooting, looks for inverted guard and possible inverted triangle. Jacare out again, Estima still scooting.
Jacare hasn't offered anything offensive compared to Estima. Jacare down into Estima's closed guard. Estima locks an omoplata transition into a kneebar attempt. Score is still 0-0. 50/50 guard temporarily until Jacare backs out. Jacare complains again that he got popped in the ribs. Referee gets Jacare to take shirt off as deemed too baggy. Weird.
Jacare looking to pass guard but unable, Estima tries a sweep into a takedown but can't finish. Ref calls a short grab against Estima and a warning. Estima still scooting against Jacare. Regulation time ends with a 0-0 score so far. We're now in the points scoring zone.
Estima now no longer to scoot, and no longer to pull guard without at least 3 seconds attempting a genuine takedown. Both start looking for collar and wrist control. Estima eventually shoots for a single leg then switches to the other leg but Jacare able to get hips back and work his way out.
Jacare scores a power double leg takedown though they end up out of bounds. Still 0-0. Reset in the middle Jacare had the back standing but pushes off. On the mat and Jacare is looking to pass Estima's guard. Reset back in the middle, Jacare's ribs are still bothering him. Back in the open guard and Estima is working 50/50 sweeps and takes the back looking to get a hook in now he has both hooks but unclear if it was long enough as Jacare spins into guard. Estima scores backpoints 3-0 which Jacare disagrees with. Jacare inside Estima's guard and now must look to score points or submit.
Estima looks for inverted guard briefly but settles on a shallow half guard. Back to inverted looking for a sweep but time runs out and Estima for the first time has beaten Jacare by points 3-0, all coming down to his sweep to the back and getting hooks in just long enough. Braulio Estima def Jacare de Souza by points.

Marcelo Garcia vs Davis Heart and Andre Galvao vs Don Ortega. Marcelo hits a nice sweep. Marcelo locks up his trademark Guillotine choke and gets the win.
Galvao is starting to score points on Ortega with back control now we're half way through the time period (points only score in the second half of a match to encourage early finishes - in theory). Galvao wins on points.
Victor Estima is facing Sanshiro Nakakura right now, Gunnar Nelson is facing Marko Helen.
The Braulio Estima vs Ronaldo 'Jacare' Souza superfight is expected later today.

Rafael Mendes vs Bruno Frazzato up next, both on the same team ATOS, put together in the opening round to prevent them closing the bracket if they were to meet in the finals.
Augusto Mendes gets a leglock and beats Rocha. Viera comes from a points behind to win on points with a Ippon Seoinage shoulder throw.
Mendes and Frazzato are unsurprisingly mostly working from 50/50 guard.
Robson Moura works from a jump guard arm-in guillotine to a Marcelotine after a series of rolls / sweeps. Greger Forsel manages to get out and is trying to survive Moura's guard. Moura gets a guillotine again and flips to mount but Forsel is still able to defend.
Rader vs Hirvikangas up next. Rafa Mendes wins on points.
Jeff Monson who was originally out due to missing his plane, has turned up and is now competing in a match. Very weird.

Yoshida is still fighting from the back in a crucifix control looking for a choke. Monson still grappling Juskowiak who is turtled up with Monson looking for an opening to breakdown or submit.
Glover is very casual out there not doing a great deal and perhaps winding down the clock until he can score points. Bordering on disrespecting his opponent but well see how it goes on.
Looks like Monson beat Juskowiak by points / referee's decision. Renier manages to escape Yoshida's crucifix and is working on top. Renier vs Yoshida restarted as officials wanted to dry up sweat on mat. Glover starting to take Barlow more seriously. Renier takes Yoshida down presumably scoring points. Yoshida manages a back take and a choke for the win.

Palhares vs David Avellan. Palhares with a big takedown, then a heelhook for a win. Palhares goes to hug Avellan and it's treated like he's attacking Avellan. Palhares trying to explain. Apparently the match is being restarted because the submission was out of bounds. More bonkers stuff with Palhares. he must be the Simple Jack of Submission Grappling. Try to restart from heelhook position. Avellan tries to spin out and Palhares kneebars the shit out of him. Could be an injury. Palhares wins ... again, in the same match.
