MAY 09, 2023, ABU DHABI, UAE, held another edition of the AJP Grand Slam Tour, an event that ran on the same weekend as the Brazilian Nationals (CBJJ) and still managed to gather some of the top athletes in the world jiu-jitsu circuit. A testament to how strong this league is at the moment.

Among the Grand Slam’s biggest names were Zayed Alkatheeri (Commando Group), Jansen Gomes (Checkmat), Lucas Protasio (Checkmat), Julia Alves (GFT), Hiago George (PSLPB), Uanderson Ferreira (Commando Group), Ingridd Alves (Guigo), Yatan Bueno (Fratres), Thiago Macedo (Rodrigo Pinheiro BJJ) and more.

With many stars on the mats, and even more rising talents, a few upsets were in order, and indeed there were. Arguably the biggest surprise of the event was Khaled Alshehii, a member of the Al-Ain Club and of the UAE National BJJ Squad, who made it through to a gold medal in a solid 62-kilogram division. A division with solid talents from Brazil such as Leonardo Mario, Jefferson Faguntes, and Wagner Chrispim.

One of the biggest upsets of the event was dished out by Russia’s Vladimir Kuchmistyi (Team Strela), who defeated one of the tournament’s 69kg favorites, Thiago Macedo by 3×1. Russia brought quite a few solid names to this event, all of which were fairly unknown on the international stage. One of them was Dmitrii Vostrikov (GFT Russia) who made it through to the semi-finals of the 120-kilogram division, and last – but certainly not least – Artem Kaygarodov of Pranas BJJ. The 29-year-old black belt beat 3 Brazilian competitors, including the 77kg division #1 seed, Lucas Protasio, reaching the bronze medal here.

In the female division, brown belt Maria Delahaye maintains her momentum and keeps her (mostly) undefeated record in the AJP, given that her only losses in this league came from teammates in friendly (and likely pre-arranged) matches. Maria is a phenom and someone to take into account as, likely, the future of this division at 22 years old.
