OCTOBER 02-03, 2022, saw another edition of the AJP Tour’s Asia Continental Pro, one of the bigger tournaments on the federation’s calendar outside the Grand Slams and the World Pro. This was also the last big championship before the top event of the year for the AJP, the Abu Dhabi World Pro, which happens in November, this year.

This year’s Asia Continental Pro was dominated by Brazilian athletes who won every gold medal at the black belt pro-level, but despite this dominance, fun matches were plentiful and submissions ran high with the tournament providing a 48% submission average. Very good numbers considering revered events such as the ADCC had their sub-percentage at 36%.

In the 62-kg division, Jonas Andrade showed his strengths in a division that had many interesting names such as rising UAE prospect Zayed Alkatheeri, Samat Aitpanbet, and Bruno Borges, all three very worthy candidates for the gold medal. Andrade had three matches for gold, submitting his first two opponents (one with a rare “Cryangle” – triangle with a leg inside the lock) and another from the back.

Another impressive performance this weekend was that of Lucas Protasio. The Northeastern Brazilian athlete is, undoubtedly, one of the most exciting athletes in the lightweight division right now. Never a dull moment when Protasio is competing, Lucas pushed the pace and reaped the rewards of his aggressive nature by taking another gold medal while beating a few big names of the AJP circuit in veteran André Cantanhede and Jonatham Silva.

In the 85 and 94-kilogram divisions, brown belt Uanderson Ferreira and black belt Catriel Oliveira continue to dominate their weight classes, both being among the most active and winning competitors in the league. Below are the results of the professional divisions’ semi-finals and finals.

You can watch the full event on the latest AJP streaming website, which is an excellent and well-built resource for the fans.
