Following the debut of sister organization Medusa Jiu Jitsu yesterday, the Combat Jiu Jitsu Worlds returns today with Combat Jiu Jitsu Worlds 2021: The Middleweights. The event is coming live from Cancun, Mexico.
For those unfamiliar with EBI tournaments, the rules are simple. There are no points or advantages, with a winner only determined with a submission. If no winner is determined during the 10-minute regulation time, there is are three overtime rounds. Much like Submission Underground, each fighter will be given a starting position in either an armbar position or back control. The fighter that gets a submission from their position quickest is declared the winner. If there is no submission, the grappler with the longest ride time will win the match.
Combat Jiu Jitsu adds an extra wrinkle to the rules- open palm strikes. The strikes can only be made to the body and head once both fighters are grounded. This adds the TKO as a potential method of victory.
The event features a sixteen-man tournament in the middleweight division to determine the organization’s champion. Competitors include MMA veterans Felipe Fogolin, Mikey Gonzalez, and Matt Secor, Polaris vet Ben Dyson, previous Combat Jiu Jitsu Worlds competitors Jorge Tax and Nick Greene, Submission Underground and Combat Jiu Jitsu mainstays Hunter Colvin and Kyle Chambers, and others.
Stay tuned to MMA Sucka for live updates on Combat Jiu Jitsu Worlds 2021: The Middleweights. The action begins at 6pm ET/3pm PT on UFC Fight Pass.
