Grapplers Quest put together a 32-man super-tournament worth 10 thousand dollars to the winner.
The big name of the event was João Assis. The beast from CheckMat overcame the highly decorated Xande Ribeiro, a two-time absolute world champion in Jiu-Jitsu, in the final. To get past the stalwart, Assis first landed a takedown and followed up with a sweep to win by 4 to 2.
Prior to the final the fighter made it past opponents of the caliber of Bruno Bastos, who he beat by a single advantage point in the semifinals, and tapped out his other three opponents. Xande eliminated the likes of Leopoldo Serão.
Although de dropped out in the semifinal when Xande Ribeiro caught him in a triangle choke for the finish, Rustam Chsiev returned to the mat to take third place over Bruno Bastos. The match went to extra time and, after ending in a draw, the judges rewarded Chsiev the win.
The event also featured a supermatch won by Ulysses Gomez.
