JUNE 3, 2018 was the day that marked the inclusion of the black belt divisions in the IBJJF World Jiu Jitsu Championship, showing the younger generations what is expecting them in the near future.

Opening Saturday’s hostilities with the open weight class has been a tradition over the past few years, the exception for 2018 were the high numbers of jaw dropping matches in the division. Nicholas Meregali vs Felipe Pena (Meregali by arm in Ezekiel), Marcus Buchecha vs Fellipe Andrew (Buchecha by armbar), Tim Spriggs vs Gutemberg Pereira (Spriggs after Pereira’s DQ), Buchecha vs Meregali (Buchecha 5×2 pts) and Leandro Lo vs Honório (Lo 4×0 pts) could all go down as some of the most drama fueled duels in the history of the World Championships, with backwards and forwards action throughout.

In the end the absolute division final of the men’s black belt division will be a repeat of last year’s match between Leandro Lo and Marcus Almeida, as will be the female open weight final. A match between Nathiely de Jesus and Tayane Porfirio.

The high level of matches seen in the open weight certainly tricked down to the standard weight classes, with some modern day classics taking place bringing the best out of the fans. After a full day of great jiu jitsu, some of the finals have been set (black belt female divisions and black belt male absolute) as well as the quarter-finals for the weight classes. All of which will take place tomorrow.
