HISTORY WAS MADE! The ultimate jiu jitsu tournament has ended, and as expected, it did not disappoint bringing out the top BJJ athletes in the world. Many anxiously awaited this year’s IBJJF World Championship to witness the return of Marcus Almeida “Buchecha” to competition, one of the sports biggest stars. Coming out of a long lay-off due to knee surgery undertaken last year, much was expected from the ultra-heavyweight from Checkmat. Buchecha delivered with amazing performances, and by breaking the open weight division record set by Roger Gracie in 2010, of 3 world titles. Almeida earned his 4th absolute title at black belt, while also winning his weight class, an incredible achievement for the sport’s (now) all time best.

This year’s tournament was set to break records, with not only Marcus Almeida’s open weight legacy on the line, but also that of Rafael Mendes. The Atos representative reached his 6th black belt world title at featherweight, breaking the world record set by himself last year.

Bruno Malfacine continued his dominance of the roosterweights, pushing is own record now to 8 world titles, obliterating the former record of Omar Salum established in 2000 (2 titles).

Another impressive achievement was that of Domynika Obelenyte, the 20 year old Lithuanian-American athlete conquered her second successive double gold and is the youngest ever athlete to achieve this deed.

Below you will see the champions as well as the results from each of the matches that took place in the men’s black belt divisions. More details on these to come out soon.
