A brand new venue to open a brand new year. The 2018/2019 season of the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam Jiu-Jitsu World Tour was up to a good start this Sunday, July 29, in Tokyo, Japan. The crowd that packed the stands at the Ota Center General Gymnasium was treated to unparalleled thrills in the largest Abu Dhabi Grand Slam event in Japan so far. More than 700 athletes of all belts and age groups gave their best to achieve their goals and walk out with the much desired gold medals and also a good share of over US$ 120,000 in prizes. The black belt division, both for adult athletes and masters, was the main center of attention for all of those who came to watch in loco as well as those who watched live on TV or over the internet. After a full day of matches, here are the final results of each weight class in the adult black belt division.

Male Black Belt

56kg – In a single match between two countrymen, Japan's Nobuhiro Sawada beat Massaki Todokoro 1-0 on advantages after a very close and tough match.

62kg – Tomoyuki Hashimoto caught Brazil's João Gabriel Batista early in a triangle in the final, but the Brazilian was able to escape after a long struggle. Nevertheless, the advantage for the triangle was the edge Hashimoto needed to win the gold medal. Before the final, Hashimoto finished Yuto Hirao in his first match of the day.

69kg – In a single match, Australia's Lee Ting beat Brazil's Marcio Medeiros with a 8-0 lead that secured him the gold medal.

77kg – Diego Ramalho had a long way to the title. In four matches, he first beat South Korea's Inseong Jang 2-0, then repeated the score against Canadian Jacob Mackenzie to meet and finish Japan's Yuji Okamoto in the semifinal. The gold medal match was a close affair, with Ramalho and Kleber Koike fighting to the very end. A narrow 1-0 lead on advantages allowed Ramalho to take the title home.

85kg – The USA also had one champion crowned in DJ Jackson. The black belt fought three times this Sunday, first finishing Japan's Takagi Shota with and armbar and then also getting the tap against Alan Fidelis. In the final, Jackson worked his top game to outscore Great Britain's Bradley Hill with a takedown and a guard pass to build a 5-0 lead.

94kg – Rudson Mateus was another champion to enter the mat three times. He debuted against Germany's Nicolas Penzer, beat by a 9-2 final score. Then he finished Anton Minenko with a armbar from the 50/50 guard and met up with Arya Esfandmaz in the final. The Brazilian black belt imposed his game on Arya to build a 9-0 lead and take the gold medal home.

110kg – In two matches, Guttemberg Pereira was able to dominate the mat and finish Wanderson Amakawa twice to claim the title. The armlock was the weapon of choice both times for Pereira.

Female Brown/Black Belt

49kg – Mayssa Caldas came, fought, finished both her opponents and took the gold medal home. The Brazilian caught Japan's Iori Echigo and Aya Matsumoto with her trademark bow and arrow choke.

55kg – Another reigning ADWPJJC champion, now a black belt, Amal Anjahid kept no prisoners in Tokyo. In two matches, she first finished South Korea's Eummi Lee with a lapel choke from side control and then caught Livia Gluchowska with a foot lock to continue to reign supreme in the division.

62kg – In one match, Larissa Paes beat Natalia Zumba 5-2 to take the gold medal home.

70kg – Samantha Cook and Claudia were the favorites to be in the final and both made it there. Do Val beat Meagan Evans 2-0 and Priscilla Cerqueira by decision to reach the gold medal match. Cook caught Caroline Marciano with a choke from the back. In the final, after a very close match, the referees decided in favor of Cook following a 0-0 tie on points.

90kg – Gabrieli Pessanha is another upcoming talent that deserves attention. In two matches, she paved her way to the gold medal with imposing performances. She first beat Jessica Andrade 17-2 and then outscored Shantelle Thompson 14-0.


Shaolin secures a narrow win against a very game Daisuke Shiraki

The match was way closer than most of the crowd expected. Two times Legends champion Vitor Shaolin had to work really hard to beat a very tough opponent in Japan's Daisuke Shiraki. The Japanese black belt started out in full speed to quickly reach Shaolin's half guard and score an advantage. With all the experience acquired in decades of training and competing, Shaolin put the breaks on Shiraki's enthusiasm and found the strength to attack a cross choke from the closed guard to score an advantage and secure the win by one penalty.

Fedor v Sonnen at Bellator 208



LOS ANGELES – The greatest heavyweight of all time Fedor Emelianenko (37-5, 1 NC) will battle the trash-talking Chael Sonnen (31-15-1) in the second semifinal of Bellator’s Heavyweight World Grand Prix. The highly anticipated matchup will emanate from NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., a mere 24 hours after Matt Mitrione takes on Ryan Bader on the opposite side of the bracket.

Tickets for Bellator 208: Fedor vs. Sonnen are available 24-hours early through a special Bellator Nation pre-sale running exclusively on Thursday, July 26. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Friday, July 27 at 10 a.m. ET and can be purchased at the NYCB LIVE box office, as well as Ticketmaster and Please note that tickets are not available at the box office on the first day of public on sale.

The event will be broadcast LIVE on Paramount Network at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT on Saturday, October 13 and will stream LIVE on DAZN, while preliminary action will stream on and globally on the Bellator Mobile App. Additional bouts will be announced in coming weeks.

Fighting out of Stary Oskol, Belgorod Oblast, Russia, Fedor will enter the Bellator MMA cage for the second time this year, and third time overall, when he takes on Sonnen in the Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix semifinals on Saturday, Oct. 13. The sambo fighter looks to build off of his impressive knockout victory over Frank Mir (18-12) at Bellator 198, which came just 48 seconds into the bout. A former PRIDE FC Heavyweight Champion and PRIDE 2004 Heavyweight World Grand Prix Champion, “The Last Emperor” now has his eyes set on the Bellator MMA Heavyweight belt; a title that he is merely two wins away from. With 28 of his 37 career victories ending in a finish, Emelianenko will undoubtedly pursue yet another highlight-reel knockout when he squares off with “The American Gangster” for a place in the World Grand Prix final.

Hailing from West Linn, Ore., Sonnen is fresh off his first-round victory over “Rampage” Jackson at Bellator 192 in the opening round of the Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix earlier this year. With other notable wins over the likes of Wanderlei Silva, Michael Bisping and “Shogun” Rua already under his belt, Sonnen now hopes to add the legendary Fedor to his brilliant resume of renowned victories. After jumping up in weight class to compete in the biggest tournament in the promotion’s history, the former University of Oregon wrestler doesn’t seem to have lost a step. Sonnen will look to join the select few who have ever been able to dethrone Emelianenko when he enters the cage on Oct. 13 at NYCB LIVE.

Updated Bellator 208: Fedor vs. Sonnen Fight Card:
Heavyweight World Grand Prix Semifinal Bout: Fedor Emelianenko (37-5, 1 NC) vs. Chael Sonnen (31-15-1)
