The white and blue belt dispute served up heaps of excitement as well, on the final day of the World Pro in Abu Dhabi. Among the standouts was adoptive son of Sheikh Tahnoon, Faisal Al Kutbi.

In the over-78kg absolute, the local representative defeated all his opponents and overcame Tarek Mattar in the decider, by 4 to 2 with takedowns. The crowd went wild. Faisal also won at weight (93 kg), defeating Brazil’s Celson Frabetti.

In the under-78 kg absolute, Jonathan Tuck was on a roll, but lost in the final, dropping 2 to 0 against Mohammed Naser.

Matheus Luckmann was another who did great. The Alliance representative, who won last week’s Pan-American, won the under-68 kg division.
