APRIL 14, 2018 Almaty, Kazakhstan saw its very first major professional jiu jitsu event by way of ACB JJ. The Russian based promotion brought forward an avalanche of high level athletes for a night of great entertainment.
With three title matches on the line, the event did not disappoint with very evenly skilled competitors going up against each other. With so much high level talent on the mats it was inevitable to have a few uneventful clashes given that any mistake could cost the “W”. That certainly wasn’t the case in Luan Alves vs Edwin Najmi, Keenan Cornelius vs Mahamed Aly and Adam Wardzinski vs Felipe Pena. All barn burners worth watching again and again.
Submission of the night will likely go to Rudson Mateus. The young black belt has been on fire at ACBJJ, continuing his unbeaten run in the promotion with another quick submission from the back in round 1.
The main events, the 3 title matches were in a way the most some of the most one sided bouts on the card with all three champions retaining their titles in dominant fashion. Worthy of a side note was challenger Osvaldo Moizinho who did put on a brave performance and got close to a submission on Paulo Miyao, though in the end it was still a dominant performance by the Unity standout.
