Speaking about Evolve’s most recent accomplishment, Evolve Instructor and BJJ World Championship Silver Medalist Almiro Barros said, “Seeing all of our students compete with honor and sportsmanship while giving it everything they have got, makes me very proud. Everyone who competed represented Evolve MMA well, and they should all be proud of themselves, no matter the result. Results like these give us an opportunity to take a step back and admire the progress our students have been making. I’m proud to have been involved in their incredible journeys so far.”
