Repeat Meo Rip Curl Pro Portugal wildcard Frederico Morais went blow-for-blow with the former World Champ at Supertubos in front of a passionate Portuguese crowd. The local's crisp backhand attack was enough to take down the Brazilian as well as California rookie Conner Coffin in Round One. A Round Two loss for Medina could close the door on his World Title dreams.
Morais will look to continue his giant-killing run in Round Three. Last year, he took down 3x World Champ Mick Fanning on his way to securing a Quarterfinal finish.
