Who To Watch Saturday at the Worlds

Tomorrow, I’ll be glued to the IBJJF stream watching the black belt finals. Today is going to be a great day of jiujitsu as well, but it’s more haphazard: you sort of have to seek out the matches you want to watch. Using the IBJJF big board, I tracked down a bunch of matches I’d like to check out.

Some of these folks are my friends, some teammates of friends, some are just awesome athletes and I want to watch them, and most fall into all three categories. Anyway, here’s the matches I don’t want to miss, and if you’re watching the stream I hope this helps you find some good stuff.

Three important things:

1. It’s possible I missed people: the IBJJF interface is weird. Apologies if so!

2. The IBJJF changes stuff around, so it’s important to double check at the big board link:…/appli…/orderfight/index.php…

3. You can also check out the brackets for matches you may want to watch: for example, if Murilo Santana and Victor Estima both win, they’ll meet tomorrow morning, and wow is that going to be good. Please post matches I missed/people you want me to find match times for in the comments!
