Savarese BJJ female competitors excel at Big Apple Open
The Savarese BJJ female competitors excel at Big Apple Open, with all 5 competitors making it to the podium. Led by purplebelt Ariana Zeppetelli, competing for the first time since winning 4 matches at the World BJJ Championships in 2017, the women had a very impressive showing.
Zeppetelli took out her opponent, who had won 5 tournaments in a row throughout 2018-2019, in less than 2 minutes w/ a choke. Her younger sister, “Terrorisa” Zeppetelli, also won her division, winning all of her matches in dominant fashion by submission. Maria “Foof” Villa, also won her division winning every match by submission. Congrats to Ivette Ponte and Mariana Vazquez on their great showing as well.
