After conquering the top of the BJJ world this year by becoming an IBJJF world champion, Jamil Hill has kept busy, continuing to enter tournaments and sharpen his unorthodox style even more. The most recent example came at the New York Open, held early this month.
To take gold in the featherweight division, the American from Team Lloyd Irvin faced Matheus Gonzaga. Feared for his guard, Jamil had to play on top at the start as he was pulled. After attacking and scrambling things up, Jamil wound up on the bottom and started adjusting his final attack.
While being stacked, Jamil managed to apply a lasso and waited for the right opportunity. As he tried to sweep and saw his opponent sideways, Jamil went for the back and attacked the unattended arm, stretching the winning armbar.
