On an overcast and rainy Friday in Toronto the UFC Fan Expo is underway. And results from the first round of the four-man No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu tournament featured at the show previously announced here on GRACIEMAG.com have come in.

With Jiu-Jitsu legend Royler Gracie and Olympic judo medalist Flavio Canto looking on – and even announced by voice-of-the-octagon Bruce Buffer –, American UFC star Diego Sanchez took on Canadian Jiu-Jitsu standout Andrew McInnes. Although the outcome could have been expected, it was not a one-sided affair, as Sanchez was swept, back-mounted and behind on the scorecards before a last-ditch leglock saved his day 25 seconds from the end.

At the other end of the bracket, Brazil-Canada transplant Jorge Britto lost by a move similar to the one McInnes succumbed to, in his match with team Brasa standout Ryan Hall.

Tomorrow, Sanchez and Hall will face off in the final.
