After 3 long days of relentless battles, the competitors at the Abu Dhabi World Pro finally reached the end of the line. The tournament this year produced a very high number of upsets (see results on day 1 and 2 below) as the new kings of the UAEJJF were crowned.

In a year with countless surprises, we would like to give a special mention to the female division which saw three stars emerge from the tournament. They were brown belts Nathiely Karoline of Cicero Costha, Bianca Basílio of Ryan Gracie’s academy and Tayane Porfirio of Alliance – Leblon, who showed amazing class throughout the tournament. All three young women fought bravely in a black + brown belt mixed division, with Karoline winning her division (under 70kg), Porfirio winning the absolute as well as the +70kg division and Basílio showing wonderful technique in placing 4th (absolute) and 2nd in the 62kg. The future holds great things for these three athletes.
