And so the 2010 No-Gi Worlds is history, and a confident Roberto Cyborg Abreu was again the standout at an IBJJF tournament, taking the absolute and ultra heavy adult divisions and finishing the season in a great fashion.

With the No-Gi Worlds double victory tonight in Long Beach, California, the Avengers team representative got his best career title so far, but his winning streak has been impressive, as he also conquered the Miami Open, the Honolulu Open and a number of Grapplers Quest challenges in the second half of 2010.

The other blackbelt open weight champions were Gracie Rio de Janeiro representatives João Farias (master) and Jackson McVicker (senior 1), and Paragon representative Ricardo Franjinha (senior 2).

Team results (yet to be officially acclaimed by IBJJF):

Adult:
1- Checkmat – 53 pts
2- The Avengers – 49 pts
3- Ribeiro JJ – 38 pts

Master and Senior:
1- Gracie Barra – 122 pts
2- Gracie Rio de Janeiro – 115 pts
3- Paragon – 58 pts

Female:
1- Gracie Rio de Janeiro – 43 pts
2- Checkmat – 21 pts
3- Lloyd Irvin – 18 pts

Juvenile:
1- American Top Team- 18pts
2- Claudio França – 15pts
