Keenan Cornelius and Paulo Miyao both get DQ’ed in Abu Dhabi Pro Finals

Double DQ at the 2013 Abu Dhabi World Pro Jiu Jitsu for Keenan Cornelius and Paulo Miyao in the brown belt open weight division.

Both were warned four times but their double guard pull position warranted not enough action from the ref.

This is exactly how their match went at the 2013 IBJJF Pan American Championship.

They are shocked as only Kaue Damasceno is left on the podium.

You could say the 50/50 and double guard pull game is shunned in Abu Dhabi.

The tremendous irony in this situation is that Kaue Damasceno was also DQ’ed in the semi-finals for slamming Keenan.  So all 3 medalists were DQ’ed but only Paulo and Keenan are left without prize money and medals.
