LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Jayson Patino of American Top Team was a double winner at the Grappling World Team Trials, winning the Gi competition on Saturday and the No-Gi competition on Friday.

Patino won a best of three series at 71 kg, beating Jerome Gage of Boxing, Inc. in two straight matches, both by submission. In the first match, he scored a submission at 4:25, then got a submission at 3:06 in the second bout.

At 84 kg, three athletes competed in a round-robin, with all three earning 1-1 records. Based upon tie-breaking criteria, Robert Yamashita of Navy won the title. He beat third-place Jeff Funicello, 2-0, but lost to runner-up Marc Brewer, 2-1.

Winning their World Team spot by sweeping best-of-three series in two straight were Aaron Yoches of Edge MMA & Fitness at 100 kg and Phillip Lobsinger at +100 kg.

Yoches scored a pair of submissions over Jeff Zastrow of the Air Force WC, in 2:24 and 2:45. Lobsinger beat Joel Bane of the Air Force WC by submission in 27 seconds in the first match, then took the second with an injury default.
