This year, the UAEJJF's Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu-Jitsu Championship celebrates an important milestone; its 10th anniversary edition. And to commemorate, the UAEJJF team is preparing an even bigger and better event than ever before. We're talking over a MILLION BUCKS in cash prizes to be won by competitors (and spectators too!) throughout the event, and more representative competitors from more countries than any previous World Pro!
KING OF THE MAT - SPECIAL EVENT FEATURE
An exciting new addition to this year’s line-up of special features includes the first-ever “King of the Mat” competition. The event – which is one of the most hotly-anticipated of the year – will see previous World Pro champions from the past 9 years come together to compete against one another in an 'all-star' type sub-tournament. With a list of King of the Mat participants that includes such jiu-jitsu superstars as Rafael Mendes, Rodolfo Vieira, Leandro Ro and Buchecha, just to name just a few, it’s bound to be an edge-of-your-seat event for spectators, with some truly impressive jiu-jitsu taking place, not to mention a $200,000 prize to be shared between the medallists of the three King of the Mat weight divisions (light, middle, and heavyweight) up for grabs.
The action starts on April 16th at the Mubadala Arena in Abu Dhabi, and continues for 13 consecutive days, building up to the grand finale on April 28th.
