British open results

BJJ British Open results..

James Bland won his purple belt super super heavyweight category taking him to 12-0 as a purple belt!

Lee Howes lost his first fight by RNC against a much more experienced purple belt, but lead for most of the fight by 5 points. In his second fight he fought a very good purple from GB lagarto and got armbarred.

Neil won his 1st fight via points and after a 30 second 2nd fight with the organisers putting the wrong opponent in front of him on the mat (it was stopped..) he lost by 1 advantage point in the 2nd (3rd?) fight.
