We opened with a discussion about the key role of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the submission victory by Fabricio Werdum over Fedor Emelianenko. Werdum, a two-time Jiu-Jitsu world champion and a two-time ADCC world champion, defeated Fedor with a triangle choke in just 69 seconds in the main event on the Strikeforce-M-1 Global mixed martial arts card held Saturday, June 26, in San Jose, California. We analyzed the technique used by Werdum in this historic victory, handing Fedor his first real defeat in mixed martial arts in his storied career.
We next discussed the good and the bad of the 2010 World Jiu-Jitsu Championship, also known as the Mundials. This event, the most prestigious in the world in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, took place June 3-6 at California State University Long Beach. At it, Roger Gracie once again dominated all his opponents, winning both in his weight and the absolute divisions. Many people, however, emerged from that event with major criticisms of some current trends in jiu-jitsu which were apparent at it, including the tendency for some top competitors not to try submissions. We also focused on the future of jiu-jitsu and grappling, the key role played by many people in Abu Dhabi in supporting and developing these sports, and much more.
