Ivan “Batman” Jorge (Ataque Duplo) beat Mario Soldado (CM System) on the 30th in Warrior’s Challenge 4, which took place in Portobelo, Santa Catarina. With this achievement, Batman finished the year with a portfolio of 13 fights and 12 victories. More impressively: there were seven fights in 2009 alone, according to Sherdog.com.

The night was highlighted with the victory of the black belt and South American Jiu-Jitsu champion Alexandre Ceconi (Rilion), who finished the fight in the first attack with an arm-lock.

The fight between Batman and the Soldier was very tough, but Ivan won by unanimous jury decision. He now dreams of more fights in his category, up to 77kg. In the last few challenges, he was fighting in the category of up to 88kg.

“It was a very good year for me and I hope that 2010 will be even better. I want to go to fights abroad in big events,” said Batman, who in 2009 represented the US in the M-1 Challenge in Russia.
