Mahamed Aly and Tim Spriggs close out Washington Open

Share it

Mahamed Aly is declared absolute champion. IBJJF

For one day this weekend, the capital of the U.S. and the capital of BJJ were one and the same. That’s because Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex in Hyattsville welcomed the Washington, DC Open.

By the end, Team Lloyd Irvin had dominated the competition, with, among other great results, Mahamed Aly and Tim Spriggs closing out the absolute division for the team.

In the ultra-heavyweight division, Mahamed was the favorite, but BJJ fans were hoping to watch ADCC champion Gordon Ryan, who had signed up to compete in the gi for the first time at a high level, but didn’t show up. So Mahamed had only one fight, beating Grafton Skaggs (Big Brother).

In the open division, Mahamed beat Thomas John (Soul Fighters) and Alexandre Molinaro (Carlson Gracie) to meet his teammate Tim Spriggs in the final. And so Mahamed and Spriggs, the latter of which had claimed the super-heavy title earlier, closed it out for TLI.

Cláudia do Val (De La Riva) had no opponents in her weight division or in the absolute, so she took double gold and some free points for the women’s IBJJF rankings.
