The final day of the 2018 World IBJJF No-Gi Championship — this Sunday — had strong emotions in store, and the public in Anaheim, Calif. was given quite a treat.

Among the standouts of the event were Gordon Ryan and Bia Mesquita, each with double gold.

To Ryan, who got a reaction from the crowd by appearing donning a red robe and a crown on Friday, the following two days served to prove his effectiveness in no-gi beyond a shadow of a doubt. In the ultra-heavy division, Ryan beat Yuri Simões in a semifinal match, later beating Roberto Cyborg for all the marbles — a fight the American was winning on points, but which ended in a disqualification, due to the force used by Cyborg when grabbing him by the neck. In the absolute, Ryan defeated two opponents before besting Patrick Gáudio in the quarterfinals, Jackson Sousa in the semis, and finally Yuri Simões.

With a sharp guard game, always seeking to place himself under his opponents and to sweep, Ryan was one step ahead in every match. In the absolute final, a sweep attempt against Simões yielded him the decisive advantage.

In the women’s section, Bia Mesquita had the perfect day. At middleweight, after beating former UFC fighter Sarah Kaufmann, Bia had a hard-fought match with Ana Carolina Vieira, whom she beat with a takedown. In the absolute division, after getting past two opponents, Bia encountered Jéssica Flowers — the super-heavy champion — in the gold decider. It was all level until the final moments, when Bia managed to advance and take the back. She didn’t place the hooks, but it was enough to give her a 1-0 lead, and that was the end of that.
