SLeonardo Lo could easily incapacitate an opponent with his hands and feet, but the martial artist didn’t stand a chance against a pistol. As several media unanimously report, the multiple world champion in jiu-jitsu died at the age of 33 after a brutal violent crime.

Among other things, the Spanish newspaper “Marca” reports Los’s death and describes the alleged course of events. Accordingly, the successful martial artist got into a fight with a drunk guest at a party in the Brazilian metropolis Saõ Paulo.

The alleged perpetrator – according to media reports, a police officer who was off duty at the time of the attack – is said to have initially tried to hit Lo with a bottle. The athlete was only able to convince the man to put the bottle down and bring him to the ground. Immediately afterwards, the attacker drew a gun and shot the eight-time Jiu-Jitsu world champion in the head.
