The always thrilling open weight class of the IBJJF World Jiu Jitsu Championship is set to commence tomorrow, 5th of May 2016 at the Walter Pyramid arena on the campus of Long Beach State University in Long Beach, California. Below are the brackets for the black belt absolute divisions (male and female).

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OPEN MENS WEIGHT BRACKETS

As expected we have incredible matches ahead. This year the division is slightly smaller than in the past, with 35 brave men signed up. In the absence of big names such as Andre Galvao, Jackson Sousa, Matheus Diniz, Dillon Danis and a few others, the big focus of the absolute will be if Buchecha can break Roger Gracie‘s record of three open weight world titles. Felipe Pena, Alexander Trans, Bernardo Faria, Leandro Lo and co. will not fancy Marcus’ chances.
