Ten-time world champion, Marcus Buchecha is already plotting his plans for the next season. In addition to confirming his presence in the World IBJJF league, where he will seek his sixth title in his weight division, the Checkmat black belt also signed with ACBJJ (Absolute Championship Berkut Jiu-Jitsu). Thus, Buchecha, which still has no marked date for his debut in the tournament yet, joins other big names like Felipe 'Preguica', Erberth Santos and Mohamed Aly in event roster.
"The ACBJJ is an event that is further professionalizing our sport. The events are getting better, more professional and an event of this size, growing so much, I could not stay away. The biggest names in Jiu-Jitsu have signed with the event. I'm sure it will be very good for the sport, and we have to support it" he praised.
This year, Marcus Buchecha won another jiu-jitsu - crowned champion of the ADCC and also won the championship of the IBJJF Pro League, which paid 40,000 US dollars to the champion of the tournament. For 2018, the expectation is to repeat the good performance. He can't wait to make his debut in the Russian organization.
"I'm very eager to attend the event. The individual fight format category is very similar to the UFC, and it is quite interesting. This brings a different look to the competition from the traditional format. I intend to fight several times in the event in 2018, so I have to prepare myself well because I will have a full schedule next year", concluded the fighter.
