MARCH 13, 2023, LONDON, ENGLAND, this weekend we had the pleasure of watching another edition of the Abu Dhabi Jiu-Jitsu Pro (AJP) Grand Slam Tour. This year the event brought forth quite a few big names in the sport, despite there being a wide variety of important tournaments spread out across the globe this weekend.

In the adult, black belt divisions alone, the AJP London Grand Slam counted 133 matches, which resulted in 49 submission wins (37%), with the grappling stars Mica Galvão & Meyram Maquiné taking a 100% submission rate in the 77-kilogram & 62-kilogram, respectively. Maquiné and Galvão weren’t the only big names on deck in England’s capital this weekend, many others were there, such as Jansen Gomes, who put on a real show of forward-moving jiu-jitsu by placing double digits on the scoreboard in several matches and finishing creative submissions such as a Tarikoplata shoulder lock in the final of the 85kg weight class.

Also on the mats were names like Hiago George, Thiago Macedo, Espen Mathiesen, Tarik Hopstock, Adam Wardzinski, Catriel Oliveira, Bruno Lima, Anna Rodrigues, Gabrieli Pessanha, Julia Alves, to name a few.

Although Mica and Meyram took most of the attention from the tournament with outstanding submission sprees, arguably, the most impressive performance of the day was that of Maria Claudia, of InFight. A training partner of double gold World medalist Gabrieli Pessanha, Maria received her black belt midway through 2022, and although she had competed once in Brazil in her new rank, this was her first big test in the division. Standing on Maria Claudia’s side of the bracket were two big names of the 62-kilo weight class, Gabriela Pereira and Julia Alves, which the Rio de Janeiro native took out with the assertiveness of a seasoned veteran.

Equally eye-opening was the work of Abdurahmanhaji Murtazaliev of Kyrgyzstan. We did not know too much about Abdurahmanhaji prior to this tournament as we’ve not seen him compete at the bigger shows on the international front, nevertheless, this young man was able to skilfully take his opponents out one by one, on his way to the final of the 85-kilo division (187 lbs), showing a cool head in tough clashes.
