JULY 30, 2023, PHOENIX, AZ, witnessed another edition of the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) Open, an event that did not bring hectic numbers of elite adult division black belts, but did indeed spark the interest of a fair few big names such as the Luna Brothers (Matheus & Mathias), Nagai Brothers (Sam & Jackson), Fellipe Andrew, Diego “Pato” Oliveira, Mateus Rodrigues, Horlando Monteiro, to name a few.

This hot pot of big names with a few lesser-known names did give way to a fair few one-sided battles and big numbers of submissions (71% submission rate), including two very unusual subs from the Nagai bros, first in the lightweight by way of Espalha Frango (see what Espalha Frango is here) and another from shoulder pressure.

Among the biggest duels of the day were Mateus Rodrigues’ war with Horlando Monteiro, the highly entertaining duel between Fellipe Andrew and Italo Lima, as well as the barn-burner lightweight final between Samuel Nagai and Danilo Moreira.
