World Jiu Jitsu phenom, Marcus Buchecha Almeida dominated the male black belt division in grand fashion; earning gold for his weight and open weight class division at the Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship this past weekend.

In a close and exciting open weight match, Almeida edged out the stiff competitor with two advantage points to earn the impressive victory and retain his title for the third consecutive year.
“It was really hard but happy to win my fourth gold. I had met him around six times and he has always been a tough opponent. I started the fight with two points and I kind of managed to go with it to the end of the fight,” said Almeida
