In Loving Memory of LEANDRO LO

One year may have passed...

Leandro Lo at 33, one of the greatest Jiu-Jitsu champions of all time, has been buried after he was shot in the head by a man in a club in São Paulo on Sunday 07th August 2022.

Witnesses said the situation started when the police officer grabbed a bottle from Lo’s table. The fighter then responded by taking him down and holding him, but witnesses said Velozo shot Lo in the head after the two were separated.

Lo was taken to the hospital but was declared brain dead within a matter of hours.


Many of the mourners attended the ceremony in a GI, the uniform worn in Jiu-Jitsu
