Last weekend (February 10) saw one of the top brown belt events in the world take place on Norwegian soil, a tournament that gathered some of the very best brown belts in Europe to decide who would take the brown belt vacancy in Copa Podio’s lightweight tournament.

As we had alluded to on our pre-fight analysis, Norwegian hot prospect Tarik Hopstock of Frontline Academy was the favorite to win the show, that, however was no easy task. During his very first match of the evening Tarik almost tapped to Alberto Buriasco of Italy, refusing to do so Hopstock had his foot broken (update: although previously reported as broken, the foot was indeed badly sprained. Not broken). He carried out the match and beat Buriasco to proceed in the tournament and win the show. A performance of grit and determination that showcased just how bright the future ahead is for this young man in the sport of BJJ.

Another star in the making to emerge from Iron Brown Belt II was the Spaniard Yusef Kaddur, representative of Claudio Calasans JJ. Kaddur had 9 matches and indeed beat the champ Hopstock during the group stage (4th round), submitting many other matches while always pushing the pace and really putting himself out there as a contender for the future.

The format was dynamic and exciting, to watch with the athletes really bringing a lot of energy and warrior mentality to the mats. The forward thinking jiu jitsu on display clearly showed that jiu jitsu as a spectacle is heading on the right direction in Europe. Below are the match results for the Iron Brown Belt Europe.
