DECEMBER 16, 2023, yesterday the grappling world witnessed another edition of the AIGA (Amateur International Grappling Association) Champions League tournament finals, a Team vs Team event held in Almaty, Kazakhstan, featuring athletes from all over the world.

To clarify the dynamics of the show, although the idea behind AIGA’s Champions League is to place teams against each other, two of the groups in the semi-finals this year clashes were not Teams in the true sense of the word and more like coalitions of grappling superstars, put together for the event, as in a super suad. The two groups in question were Team Acai Republic and Team Modolfo which opposed the academies of Universal Fighters and Battle Force.

Team Modolfo – so-called in correlation to Mo Jassim’s nickname (ADCC’s top promoter & organizer of the team) – came with the bigger names of the whole tournament. Among them were athletes like ADCC 77 kg finalist, Micael Galvão, 2022 ADCC gold medalist Giancarlo Bodoni, and Oceania & Asian Trials winner Izaac Michell, to name a few. The quality of the group was evident by the near-total domination set forth by the Modolfo squad who cruised through the tournament with relative ease despite the solid opposition on the mats.

Although Team Modolfo did show its dominance, Team Acai Republic, led by Juliano Prado, also had solid performances, particularly through athletes like Kennedy Maciel & Dominic Mejia who looked tremendous throughout the tournament. Below are the team standings and full match results.
