For the first time in more than five years, veteran Brazilian Paulo Ferreira Lima from  Brazil was standing atop the Can-Am Cage, victorious when action for the week’s PBR (Professional Bull Riders) "Unleash The Beast" event wound to a close in Fort Worth, Texas. Punctuating his 4-for-5 effort inside Dickies Arena with a monstrous, walk-off 90-point ride, Lima won the PBR Tractor Supply Co. Iron Cowboy, presented by Ariat, garnering a critical 264 world points to catapult 30 rankings in the world standings.

Making the most of his alternate position in the draw, Lima rose to the occasion in Round 1 Saturday evening, covering Marquis Metal Works Draggin Up (Paradigm Bull Co./Marquis Metal Works) for 87.25 points.

While he was bested in Round 2 by Grand Theft (D&H Cattle Co./Phillip Elkins) in 3.44 seconds, Lima’s opening-round score was enough to position him within the event’s Top 8 and advance him to Round 3.

Lima next climbed aboard Homegrown (Cord McCoy/Chad Reese), regaining his winning form en route to the 8-second whistle and resulting in an 88.25-point score.

As Round 4 got underway, Lima continued his climb up the leaderboard. Winning the round, Lima clinched one of the final two positions in Round 5 when he rode Silver Lining (Stockyards/Winston/Melton Bull Co.) for 88.25 points.

Positioned second in the event, Lima found his name across from that of 2020 ABBI Classic Champion Woopaa’s (Barker Bulls/Hookin’ W Ranch) in the winner-take-all round of the progressive elimination-formatted Major.

With a propensity to propel riders to big scores, Woopaa had been ridden for 93.75 points or more in his last three trips, including his historic, 97.75-point out with 2020 PBR World Champion Jose Vitor Leme (Ribas do Rio Pardo, Brazil) in Tulsa that obliterated the league’s all-time high-marked ride record.

Continuing the streak, Lima matched the powerful bovine athlete jump-for-jump en route to a career-best 95.25-point score. The 90-point ride was the seventh of Lima’s career on the premier series and first since January 2016. Not only did the score elevate Lima to the PBR Iron Cowboy victory, but it also clinched him the $20,000 bonus presented to the high-marked ride of the event.

with the Big Check, Iron Cowboy PBR in Forth Worth - 2021 Andy Watson/Bullstock Media

Lima’s golden finish earned him a check for $126,576.92, along with a critical 264 world points. While he traveled to the event ranked No. 46 in the word, Lima surged 30 positions in the world rankings, now ranked No. 16. Seeking his fifth qualification to the PBR World Finals in 2021, and first since 2018, Lima is now within 1,370.17 points of No. 1 Leme.

After a valiant, hard-fought effort, Eli Vastbinder (Statesville, North Carolina) finished a career-best second in the Lone Star State.
