Show Notes Chapter Markers

This week on the Grappling Rewind Podcast we have three hosts Maine, Josh, and Austin.  Recapping the weeks events and previewing the brackets for the 2019 IBJJF World championships. As well as making their picks for who they think will take each division.  

To kick the show off we start out with a little bit of news.  Xande Ribeiro has announced he is pulling out of ADCC with a hand injury and subsequent surgery.  Shane Jamil Hill Taylor has also undergone emergency appendix surgery most likely putting him out of the worlds as well. In this weeks competitor beef news Erberth Satons and Nicholas Meregali have beef.  

After that we move into our recap of Polaris 10.  With Nicky Ryan winning his first Combat Niu Jitsu match vs Urijah Faber and Craig Jones def. Matheus Lutes in a battle of styles.  

We talk about how amazing of a match Ash Williams versus Ethan Crelinsten was and the arguments on either side of the decision.  

We talk about some of the more technical aspects behind the Caol Uno vs Leigh Remedios, and Richie Martinez vs Miha Perhavec.  We also talk about hot prospect Nick Rodriguez subbing Ash Amos via rear-naked choke, Nicks improvements, and potential areas he is working on in the lead up to ADCC.  

Then we move into our recap of the Eddie bravo invitational combat jujitsu worlds two.  This event featured A number of late replacement card changes that significantly change the landscape of card.  Geo Martinez was out, Jon Calestine, was out, Barret Yoshida was out.  And we saw the rest of the field be closely matched for the majority of the event.  

After that we move into brief recaps of Finishers 9 and SOGI 2.  These events featured A number of hot prospect grapplers from the East Coast and beyond.  And include some real highlight moments, including one of the most bending arms the team has ever seen without an injury.  

After that we move into the preview of the 2019 IBJJF World championships taking place later this week we go through every single black belt adult bracket.  Pick who we believe will take each division.  And talk about some of the most exciting matchup’s that we foresee for the tournament.  We also talk about the prize money available for each division.  And what we think the toughest matchup’s for the potential victors will be as they move through each side of the bracket.  We also talk about how significantly different this a vent is due to the seeding that comes with the money associated with the prices.  We see many grapplers on the same team matched up on the same side of the bracket and many affiliations meeting earlier before the finals.  This is truly not one to miss.
