CJJ Worlds 2022: The Lightweights Results

Combat Jiu Jitsu returns to action for the first time this year today, as Combat Jiu Jitsu Worlds 2022: The Lightweights goes down live from Planet Hollywood in Cancun, Mexico. For those unfamiliar, Combat Jiu Jitsu is EBI-rules Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with the added wrinkle of the availability of open-palm strikes on the ground, allowing for the possibility of a TKO finish.

The event has an interesting combination of MMA veterans, Combat Jiu Jitsu mainstays, and newcomers to the sport competing in the 16-man tournament. UFC veterans Rafael Dias and Jim Alers combine with Dana White’s Contender Series alums Diego Lopes and Mikey Gonzalez to make up the MMA-based contingency. The reigning Combat Jiu Jitsu Featherweight Champion Keith Krikorian joins former tournament finalists Nathan Orchard and Jordan Holy as the presumptive favorites of the tournament, while David Weintraub, Adrian Madridand Mikey Zindler all have previous CJJ experience as well. Decorated grapplers and MMA fighters Kieran Kichuk, Ethan Crelinsten, Adrian Luna Martinetti, Trent Ebarband Gian Mastrolorenzo all will make their debuts in the sport.

Stay tuned to MMA Sucka for live updates on Combat Jiu Jitsu Worlds 2022: The Lightweights. The action begins at 6pm ET / 3pm PT on UFC Fight Pass.
