Day 2 in Abu Dhabi saw the final day of the Kids competition and also the weigh in for the adults.
Once again, the little ones put on quite a show for the crowd.
See their final results here.
Later on, it was time for the adults to come into the FGB Arena for the official weigh in.
All the big names stepped on the scales and made the marks without problems.
As they stepped down, they would draw a number from a black box to know their place on the bracket.
The random system created peculiar situations like the one in the female -60kg brown/black division.
Finalists in 2013, Mackenzie Dern and Michelle Nicolini are set to fight in their first match.
See all the brackets here.
The last act of this Wednesday was the public draw of the open class brackets for both the female brown/black belt and the male black belt divisions.
Both brackets were full, with almost all the main athletes registering to fight for the big prizes.
Before the male brackets was drawn, a funny thing happened.
The black belt open class bracket had only one position where the fighter will have to do one fight less than the others.
Marcus Buchecha and Rodolfo Vieira had the right to choose between the two who would get that position.
Rodolfo offered it to Buchecha, but he said that they should settle it in a odds or evens game.
In the end, Rodolfo won the right for the by position with a comeback 2-1 win in odds or evens.
Watch the video of the game here.
The action kicks off this Thursday, at 9:00AM (Abu Dhabi Time).
