Buchecha again tops the world of BJJ. Beatriz Lina

The 2017 Worlds is in the books. Graciemag followed every move from the event that crowned Marcus Buchecha and Tayane Porfírio as absolute world champions, and saw Atos Jiu-Jitsu’s first-ever overall victory, stopping Alliance just short of a full decade of supremacy.

It was Leandro Lo’s worst worlds. It was Leandro Lo’s best worlds. The Ns Brotherhood star, for the first time in several years, walked away without any gold medals. But he was also just millimeters away from taking down Marcus Buchecha and claiming the title of world’s greatest BJJ fighter. It was an exhilarating battle until the final seconds, and the stronger fighter won. Buchecha is now a five-time absolute world champion, and a ten-time world champion.

In the ultra-heavyweight division, Buchecha beat Gustavo Dias by a landslide. Meanwhile Lo, who was laser-focused on the absolute, was less brilliant in the heavyweight division. He had already barely beaten Matheus Diniz by decision, and in the final he wound up swept by Nicholas Meregali’s excellent guard. Lo tried to sweep back twice, but Meregali retained his balance as best he could, achieving the win.

Tayane Porfírio beat Nathielly de Jesus and won her first absolute championship. Michael Musumeci, Gabriel Arges and Nicholas Meregali also became world champions for the first time, proudly joining the ranks of veteran champions like Bruno Malfacine, Rubens Cobrinha, Lucas Lepri, André Galvão and Marcus Buchecha.
