Among the Brown belts we had some of Europe’s finest: Faris Benlamkadem, Pedro Cadete, Richy B., Ollie Dillon, Abdallah Allam, Alexandre Baffoun, Will K. and, directly from Brazil, Gabriel Muguet. The black belt division was filled with fighters we are used to find at the top of the podium: Tommy Langaker, Ellis Younger, Sebastian Williams, Oscar Gugala, Dinu Bucalet, Sam Gibson, Bader Kuzhai and Mike Uka.
The night before the event the 8 man bracket was randomly divided into two pools of fighters, the blue group & the red group. This is how the teams ended up:
BLACK BELTS BLUE GROUP:
BLACK BELTS RED GROUP:
BROWN BELTS BLUE GROUP:
BROWN BELTS RED GROUP:
The fighters of each group faced each other accumulating points in order to advance into the finals.
The event chose the IBJJF point system but without advantages or decisions and adding some nice extra bonus points that would spice the matches up:
- Victory via Submission: 6 points
- Victory via points : 3 points
- Draw: 1 point
- Submission in under 2 minutes: +2 points
- Win by a 10+ points difference: +2 points
You can watch all the matches individually here, and read all the results here.
