In a new twist introduced at the 2014 rendition of the World Professional Jiu Jitsu Championships, all brown and black belt athletes will draw the brackets themselves, straight after making weight.
Once a fighter’s weight has been checked, they will personally draw a random number out of a hat and establish who they will face in their first fight of the tournament.
Keep an eye on our website later in the week for information on the bracket results.
