10:06 Caleb: We’re here! This is coming at me rapid fire already so I’m turning the fire hose at you now. In the second round, Kayron Gracie loses to Diego Vivaldo Ferreira (Guigo Jiu-Jitsu) by referee decision! The score was tied at 2-2 and 3 advantages each!

10:09 Caleb: Registration for the black belt absolute division has now closed. 55 competitors have signed up, including Eduardo Telles, Roger Gracie, Braulio Estima, Tarsis Humphreys, Gabriel Vella…

10:11 Caleb: Gunnar Nelson is DQ’ed in his match against Ryan Beauregard. Not sure why…

10:29 [Comment From Guest]

10:47 Caleb: Torres wins 4-2 as time runs out!

10:49 Caleb: Referee’s decision gives a controversial win to Vinicius Corales over Gunnar Nelson. (to decide 3rd and 4th place?). Nelson was DQ’d earlier if I am not mistaken…

11:03 Caleb: Thomas is working a triangle… her opponent backs out for now…

Caleb – who’s your money on for BB absolute? Cobrinha’s not in it right?

11:05 Caleb: Shahab – I would think Cobrinha is in it. I will see if I can find out.

11:05 [Comment From abdullah]
no vella and tarsis are in the open class

11:05 [Comment From Mchapman]
Vella and Tarsis are competing for Alliance in the absolute. Cobrinha is focusing on his division

Ana Carolina is now up 3-0 in her match at the 5m39s mark…

11:13 Caleb: Lana Stefanac gets 2 points for the takedown against her Brazilian opponent.

11:14 [Comment From Mark Nienaber]

11:15 [Comment From Mchapman]
55 athletes competing in the Absolute division – there seems to be a lack of agreement on the brackets

11:15 Caleb: Lana Stefanac is now playing guard against her opponent who is attempting to pass from standing.

11:16 Caleb: Relson Gracie’s son Rhalan will be competing on mat 2 shortly.

11:16 Caleb: Lana Stefanac remains up 2-0. She’s now playing from full guard.

11:18 Caleb: Gabrielle Garcia is fighting an unidentified Gracie Barra opponent on mat 5.

11:20 Caleb: JT Torres is now in action on mat 3.

11:28 Caleb: Ian McPherson (Alliance) is now on mat 7 against a JJ Machado opponent.

11:29 Caleb: It is tied as Torres’ match ends. The score was 0-0 and both had one advantage and one penalty. GB goes crazy as the ref awards the decision to the GB competitor.

11:30 Caleb: Ian McPherson wins his first match.

11:30 Caleb: Rhalan Gracie wins 5-0 against his Check Mat opponent.

11:30 [Comment From fulton]

11:33 Caleb: Val Worthington’s opponent is Sophia McDermott. I remembered!

11:34 Caleb: Katie Weilbacher (Paragon) is on deck…

11:35 Caleb: McDermott is almost catching Worthington’s back – now Val is fighting off the mount with 30 seconds left…!

11:36 Caleb: Val Worthington wins. Sophia McDermott is clutching her collarbone nervously as she stands. Robert Drysdale is giving the ref an earful, claiming that McDermott deserved points at one point along the way.

11:38 Caleb: In a Humaita match-up , South African Penny Thomas is now up against Christy Thomas (no relation).

11:46 J Sho: who are the absolute competitors? any complaints at GB maybe getting 3 guys in there? who is repping alliance – just vella and tarsis i assume?

11:48 J Sho: Hard to imagine that in years past before you did the live blogging, you had to rely on text messages to get news from the Mundials!

11:48 Caleb: Both Alliance and Barra have more than 2 entrants but both have two official representatives (whose points would count towards the team total). Barra = Braulio Estima & Roger Gracie, and Alliance has Gabriel Vella & Tarsis Humphreys. (Thanks to IBJJF’s Mike Buckels for clarifying!)

11:48 [Comment From ca]

1:22 J Sho: i dunno, Roger beats all the barra guys when they spar, i don’t think they will mentally be up for it if they face him.

1:23 Caleb: Lana Stefanac is beating Gabi Garcia all over the place and is up 16-0! Looks like it will be Kyra Gracie versus Lana Stefanac in the final!

1:23 [Comment From ninjamurf]
Dan-yeah, but the 2007 match wasn’t even close. Roger was up 10-0 before submitting Romulo

1:23 J Sho: that will be a big weight difference with Kyra/Lana!

1:23 Caleb: Stefanac goes to give Garcia a hug after the match and Garcia refuses.

1:24 [Comment From Dan]
still cheering for romulo.. to bad cobrinha isnt in it tho because he would medal

1:24 [Comment From Guest]
what a sore loser

1:25 Caleb: Max Carvalho (Barra) wins by triangle from the mount.

1:26 Caleb: Big Rodrigo Cavaca’s dangerous guard is at work again. He’s attempting an omoplata agains this opponent, but ends up sweeping instead.

1:26 [Comment From Tim L]
JSho, Braulio Roger could happens, what do you reckon

1:26 [Comment From steve finan]

1:26 [Comment From jim]

1:27 Caleb: @Jim – that was the final I believe.

1:27 [Comment From Robert Sison]
Damn I want Braulio’s guard game!

1:27 [Comment From Will]
I said it once and I”ll say it again…. Roger v. Braulio in final, and Roger submits him.

1:27 Caleb: Cavaca beats Bruno Bastos.

1:27 [Comment From Pridetv]
Thx for the feed.

1:28 J Sho: @steve i wouldn;t have thought so, there are 55 guys or so in the absolute

1:28 [Comment From Jeff]
Caleb, is Leo V there coaching?

1:28 Caleb: @Jeff – I believe I’ve seen him. My head is spinning..!

1:28 [Comment From Robert Sison]
It would be awewome if Braulio beat Roger.

1:29 [Comment From steve finan]
im just realising it was a prediction not a result… just joined

1:29 [Comment From Pridetv]
Iwatched ian rhalan. Great match. Couple of take downs not scored by ref for ian

1:29 Caleb: Roger Gracie defeated Soluco at the 2m21s mark. I missed the submission, sorry!

1:30 [Comment From Jeff]

1:31 Caleb: Big Antonio Braga Neto is now in action on mat 5! Watch out everyone!

1:31 [Comment From Will]
Caleb, are the open class brackets online?

1:31 Caleb: @Will – nope

1:31 [Comment From Pridetv]
Which Garcia

1:32 Caleb: @Pridetv – They’re probably talking about Gabi Garcia.

1:33 Caleb: Braga Neto is coming in aggressively – pulls guard , sets up a triangle, and almost has it in less than 40 seconds!

1:33 [Comment From Mark Nienaber]
6am in australia we’ve been following you all night!!

1:33 [Comment From Jeff]

1:34 [Comment From robert]

1:34 [Comment From abdullah]
telles just won his match

1:34 Caleb: Braga Neto is up 2-0 and is on top in tight side control.

1:34 [Comment From Jordon Schultz]
Caleb, can you please pee in your seat so we can keep getting these great updates.

1:35 Caleb: @Jordan – :/

1:35 [Comment From Jason Mereness]
Awesome. Just got on here!!

1:35 [Comment From abdullah]
i think neto will close the open class

1:35 J Sho: @H they do the absolute until they have the final set (which will be tomorrow) and then they will do the weight categories up to the quarter finals

1:35 [Comment From Guest]
find a cup!

1:35 [Comment From San]
What kind of smiley is that?

1:36 J Sho: the kind you use when someone asks you to pee in a cup in your chair

1:36 Caleb: Leo Santos (UNIJJ) is up against an unidentified opponent.

1:37 [Comment From Jim]
Sorry internet cut out. Is there any news on Travis Tooke?

1:37 Caleb: @Jim – don’t have any news on him

1:38 [Comment From Dan]
whats everyones prediction for black belt feather later on today?

1:38 [Comment From Jimmy]
was the Penny vs Kyra match controversial

1:38 Caleb: @Jimmy – I would say it was not…

1:39 [Comment From Mchapman]
Cobrinha, Mendes, Bruno and Reis are the favorites (with reason)

1:40 [Comment From abdullah]
@ dan rafeal mendez and cobrihna

1:40 [Comment From Sete]
Is Matt Jubera in the open?

1:40 [Comment From Dan]
Cobrinha will kill

1:41 Caleb: Rodrigo Cavaca is now up against…. Tarsis Humphreys!!!

1:41 [Comment From abdullah]
@ sete no he is not

1:41 Caleb: Leo Santos is still tied 0-0 against his opponent at 4m46s.

1:41 [Comment From abdullah]
thats an interesting fight

1:41 J Sho: @dan, mendes and cobrinha are on one side of the bracket, frazatto and reis on the other, should make for some great semis.

1:42 Caleb: Cavaca is working the de La Riva guard on Tarsis…

1:43 Caleb: Romulo Barral just began on mat 5. Don’t know his opponent…

1:43 [Comment From Sete]
I wondered if that was you Abdullah, Got brown today (of topic).

1:43 [Comment From Jason Mereness]
Will the open class final be decided today? Then contested tomorrow?

1:43 [Comment From Dan]
i see frazatto and cobrinha in the finals.. and Cobrinha finishing by taking the back

1:43 [Comment From abdullah]
when is lovato gonn fight next

1:44 J Sho: @dan or maybe anothe footlock ๐Ÿ˜‰

1:44 Caleb: Romulo Barral is defending a footlock, but ends up taking his opponent’s back. Looks like he has the choke!

1:45 Caleb: Romulo does get the tap. I can predict the future!

1:45 Caleb: The time in Romulo’s match was 1m54s.

1:45 Caleb: Leo Santos is still tied 0-0 at 7m18s.

1:46 Caleb: Tarsis is fighting hard to pass Cavaca’s difficult (and large) guard.

1:46 [Comment From Guest]
has dustin denes competed yet?

1:46 [Comment From Ross Finlayson]
@Jason – If it’s like last year, then yes. The absolute final 2 will be decided today

1:46 [Comment From Dan]
haha that would be the 3rd time catching a footlock.. Romulo is a finisher!

1:47 J Sho: @ross – looks like the ibjjf saw your skills with grouping people by gategory and stole the idea this time!

1:47 Caleb: Michael Westbrook loses 3-0. Not sure of his opponent’s name.

1:47 Caleb: I should mention Leo Santos is up by 5 advantages despite being tied at 0-0.

1:47 [Comment From Jason Mereness]
thats what I thought. Thanks Ross!

1:49 Caleb: 6m15s have passed in the Tarsis / Cavaca match and I believe it’s still 0-0. (Cameraguy permanently in the way over there…)

1:49 [Comment From ninjamurf]
Westbrook should have fought Kevin Kornemann after Corey?

1:49 Caleb: Leo Santos wins by those advantages.

1:50 Caleb: Gabriel Vella (Alliance) is no up on mat 4 against a much smaller opponent.

1:50 [Comment From abdullah]
did vella fight yet

1:50 [Comment From Jeff]
did u get that redbull or coffee yet caleb?

1:50 Caleb: @Jeff – no but I actually brought a red bull. I haven’t had time to open it!

1:50 [Comment From Ross Finlayson]
You’re welcome. I don’t know whether or it they got the idea from me, but I’m glad they’re doing it now

1:50 [Comment From abdullah]
r. barral will face telles or braga neto

1:51 J Sho: damn, that will be a great match, i think braga will overpower eduardo

1:52 Caleb: Tarsis is now defending a footlock from Cavaca, 40 seconds left…

1:53 Caleb: Leo Nogueira, who won the brown belt absolutes yesterday, was just eliminated in his weight division. Heavy arguing from Alliance ensues….

1:53 Caleb: Cavaca eliminates Tarsis Humphreys! Time runs out and the ref raises his hand! (Still can not see the score on that mat at all).

1:54 Caleb: Braga Neto versus Telles now!!!!

1:54 [Comment From Dan]
both braga and barral will beat telles

1:55 [Comment From abdullah]
thats gonn be a good fight

1:55 [Comment From Marcovia]
telles is the man! best of luck goes out to him!

1:55 Caleb: Surprisingly, Vella’s still tied 0-0 in his match.

1:56 Caleb: Anyone want to guess the position Telles is in?

1:57 Caleb: Vella gets 2 points for the takedown in his match. It’s 4m4s.

1:57 [Comment From Jeff]
Vella’s a beast!

1:57 J Sho: @caleb octopus?

1:57 [Comment From Noriega]

1:57 [Comment From Mike from Arizona]

1:57 [Comment From Guest]

1:57 [Comment From abdullah]

1:57 [Comment From Marcovia]
lol just trained with him not too long ago and he showed many good positions for his turtle guard!

1:58 Caleb: Telles is in….. turtle!

1:58 [Comment From loa]
mission control

1:58 [Comment From Dan]

1:58 [Comment From Mchapman]
Turtle? he must be in trouble…

1:59 Caleb: It’s still 0-0 between Braga Neto and Telles. Braga Neto can’t pry him open yet….

1:59 [Comment From tigah]

1:59 [Comment From Jeff]
marcovia= name dropper! lol

1:59 [Comment From abdullah]
@ CALEB lol

1:59 [Comment From Marcovia]
must be in trouble???? i have seen telles shake the guys hand and then drop tp the turtle position in matches.

2:00 Caleb: Vella gets the tap at 6m51s. I missed what the sub was. But the score was 12-0.

2:00 [Comment From Marcovia]
lol. little bit lol

2:00 [Comment From Dan]

2:00 [Comment From Mchapman]

2:00 [Comment From Noriega]
How did JT Torres do?

2:00 [Comment From Marcovia]
im very glad this is on here! im sick to my stomach that i cant be in cali for this!

2:01 J Sho: JT lost to someone from gb in the final

2:02 Caleb: Braulio Estima is now up against another tall lanky guy in a blue gi. They both pull guard at the same time and almost explode.

2:02 [Comment From abdullah]
torres got 2nd

2:02 [Comment From Mark Nienaber]
any idea who JT lost to? and how?

2:02 [Comment From abdullah]

2:02 J Sho: lol

2:03 [Comment From abdullah]
how is the telles match

2:03 [Comment From Noriega]
must of been a good one.

2:04 Caleb: 9 minutes have passed and Telles is still kinda in turtle. Braga Neto has 2 advantages despite a score of 0-0.

2:05 Caleb: Braga Neto wins by those 2 advantages over Eduardo Telles. The score remained 0-0 when time ran out.

2:05 Caleb: Braulio Estima just won. I missed the sub there, but it was at the 3m50s mark.

2:05 [Comment From Noriega]
Caleb do you know who beat JT in the final?

2:05 Caleb: @Noriega – no, it was some GB guy I don’t know.

2:06 Caleb: Lovato Jr. is tied 0-0 against his opponent, who is in Lovato’s open guard.

2:07 Caleb: Leo Nogueira (Alliance) is refusing to leave the mat after a decision he didn’t agree with earlier.

2:08 Caleb: He took off the green/yellow belt for a moment, and now has put it back on.

2:08 Caleb: Keep in mind he’s been sitting on that mat since 1:53pm.

2:09 [Comment From Mchapman]
Braulio won by triangle on Thiago Gaia

2:09 [Comment From rdbjj]
so neto vs barral?

2:10 Caleb: Wow. The ref has two more competitors out there and only upon him starting the match does Nogueira decide to leave.

2:10 Caleb: Cavaca is back on mat 6.

2:11 Caleb: Lovato Jr. still remains tied 0-0 against his opponent.

2:11 [Comment From Max Power]
lol, Any other brown heavyweight updates?

2:11 [Comment From Mchapman]

2:11 [Comment From kemail]
Caleb is the absolute bracket somewhere to find?

2:11 J Sho: someone needs to take a pic of it and post it

2:11 J Sho: is cavaca on braulio’s side of the bracket or roger’s i wonder?

2:12 Caleb: @kemail – no it’s not available. It was only created this morning after a meeting between the heads of all the camps.

2:12 Caleb: Cavaca and his opponent are seated and their legs are in a messy spaghetti.

2:13 [Comment From Alliance]
Braulio submitted Thiago Gaia at 2min50s with a triangle choke

2:13 [Comment From dokomoy]
Is there any good reason they don’t make the black belt absolute bracket when they make the rest of the brakets?

2:13 [Comment From kemail]
too bad, im goin crazy here (in Holland) thx for the good work though bro

2:14 Caleb: It’s 8m36s into the match and Lovato is still ited 0-0.

2:14 [Comment From Will]
Caleb, can’t you send one of your staff to take a photo of it and upload it? A la J Sho’s suggestion. Maybe on the way back from bringing you lunch.

2:14 J Sho: i’d do it if i were there :o(

2:14 Caleb: @Will – LULZ re: my staff! ๐Ÿ˜›

2:15 Caleb: Cavaca appears in control in his match but I can’t see what’s really going on due to that one cameraguy being in the way. If I were more mobile I’d move to see the scoreboard.

2:16 J Sho: @dokomoy – they only take registration for the black belt absolute at the tournament and they have torturous discussions to determine who will represent each academy (will all the senior guys taking part in the discussion)

2:16 Caleb: Lovato wins 3 advantages to 1 in a deadlocked match.

2:16 J Sho: check out caleb’s article from last year:

2:17 Caleb: Oh my, a clash of the titans: Gabriel Vella (Alliance) versus Leo Santos (UNIJJ).

2:18 [Comment From Alliance]
tell the camera guy to move just because some guys in internet told you to do so LOL

2:18 [Comment From Guest]
whats the best way to find a list of competitors?

2:18 [Comment From Will]
Nice post from the graciemag_br twitter.

2:18 [Comment From Will]
QUARTAS-DE-FINAL: Calasans x Cavaca; Braulio x Leandro Santos ou Vella; Braga Neto x Romulo Barral; Roger x Lovato ou Alexandre Seconi.

2:18 [Comment From dokomoy]
@Jsho I read about how they go about it, it just seems to me if they can make all the other brackets ahead of time they ought to be able to do it with the blackbelts(also I wonder if it’s fair to the guys competing from smaller camps)

2:20 Caleb: Steve Hall is rocking our gi patch on mat 3! Nice!

2:21 J Sho: wow, calasans is int he 1/4’s well done him

2:21 Caleb: Leo Santos and Gabriel Vella are tied 0-0 at 3m48s. Vella is now being attended to by the medic for something on his foot.

2:21 [Comment From Alliance]
Why is this black belt absolute bracket run before weight classes again? Would it not be logical to run it AFTER weight classes?

2:21 [Comment From Magio]

2:21 [Comment From kemail]
its not about fair, its about hwat you have done recently and lately and the big guys decide the brackets, kinda like in tennis wo the offcial ranking

2:21 [Comment From Guest]
caleb can anyone wear your patch or only sponsored fighters

2:21 Caleb: @Guest – anyone!

2:23 [Comment From dokomoy]
@kemail – it’s not the same at all. In tennis matchups are based on ratings(which are done entirely by a computer) They also don’t have to take into consideration team affiliations or anything

2:23 [Comment From johnny]
what’s the word on telles?

2:24 Caleb: @Johnny – Telles lost to Braga Neto on advantages.

2:24 Caleb: Vella and Santos are still tied 0-0, no advantages.

2:31 Caleb: Stefanac is on top of Garcia in half guard; score is 0-0 at the 2m39 mark.

2:32 Caleb: Gabriel Vella beats Leo Santos 2-0 in Santo’s debut tourney as a black belt.

2:32 Caleb: Roger Gracie will be up against Rafael Lovato Jr in a moment!!!!!!

2:32 J Sho: quick stats, 6 current or former mundials black belt champs left in the absolute – Roger is only former winner of the Absolute tho.

2:32 [Comment From Grace Barra Boston]
Any word on Marlon Xavier (GB) Black Belt Super?

2:32 [Comment From dokomoy]
from graciemag: Calasans beats Cavaca! He will face Roger or Lovato, who just eliminated Alexandre Ceconi by advantages (3-1)

2:33 [Comment From Alaina]

2:33 [Comment From Zawi]
Any Baret Yoshida results?

2:33 J Sho: wieght categories for black belts not started

2:33 Caleb: @Zawi – haven’t seen Baret Yoshida yet today…

2:33 [Comment From Jeff]
hope calebs fingers hold up!

2:33 [Comment From Alliance]

2:35 J Sho: @dan romulo vs braga neto

2:35 Caleb: Sophia McDermott is losing 2-0 to the ATT lady.

2:36 Caleb: Roger and Lovato are grip fighting.

2:36 [Comment From dokomoy]
Rommulo is fighting Antonio Brago Neto

2:36 [Comment From phil]
The reason they changed the absolute is because many competitors would not compete or would drop from the bracket because they would get tired. So they moved the absolute to the day before the black belt weight classes. Now more competitors compete in the absolute.

2:36 [Comment From Jason Mereness]
Roger vs Lovato Jr…that will be good!

2:36 [Comment From Jeff]
is xande coaching Lovato against Roger?

2:37 Caleb: @Jeff – I can’t see Xande over there but I do see Saulo. Roger just got 2 points fot the takedown.

2:37 [Comment From Dan]
roger will sub lovato

2:38 Caleb: Sophia McDermott loses 2-0 to the ATT lady.

2:38 Caleb: Lana Stefanac is up 9-0 over Gabi Garcia. Garcia looks gassed.

2:38 Caleb: Roger is now up 9-0 over Lovato.

2:39 [Comment From Magio]
Thank you

2:39 [Comment From Alliance]
@Phil but by doing that competitors get tired before the actual weight classes

2:39 [Comment From clubfoot]
hope not

2:39 [Comment From Vita Team]
Caleb has anybody closed brackets this Mundials? You know…team mates not fighting.

2:39 Caleb: @Vita – I don’t recall any of that yet.

2:44 [Comment From phil]
@Alliance That is why many do not compete in the absolute and the weight–Only the very best. the change made the absolute bracket better. remember winning the absolute is considered more prestigious then winning your weight bracket.

2:44 [Comment From Styrkur]
Neto has a good half guard

2:44 [Comment From ascension ny]

2:44 Caleb: Romulo has one advantage over Braga Neto.

3:06 [Comment From steve finan]

4:18 [Comment From Alliance]

  1. Hey man!

    Just wanted to say that this is some awesome reporting man, I really appreciate it you are doing really fantastic with everyhting and covering things over there man. I am really psyched that Finfou is doing good as he was my teacher a couple of years ago and still a friend so its nice to see him doin good as he messed up last year and lost to Bill who was a monster last year in the Mundials.

    keep it up man and thanks again

  2. Just wanted to correct errors here about Gunnar Nelson against Ryan and Vinicius.
    First: Gunnar was NOT DQโ€™ed in his match against Ryan Beauregard. Ryan was DQ’ed. With Gunnar up on points Ryan attempted a dbl leg take down towards the end of the tatame perimeter. Gunni’s stuffed the shot and the ref momentarily asked the competitors to stop fighting to bring back the action to the middle of the mat. Ryan, unprovoked, pushed violently Gunnar on the chest towards the bleachers. The ref following IBJJF regulation DQed Ryan on the spot.

    Second: Vinicius Corrales was not given victory over Gunnar in their fight. Gunnar won that fight (I think on one advantage, no sure though). Gunnar after that won Bruno Allen in the semifinals but he lost on two points against Gabriel Goulart in the finals. So Gunnar got the silver in brown belt middle.
