ACBJJ’s President Sick Of Boring BJJ Matches; Threatens To Stop Future Events

Last weekend’s ACBJJ event in Moscow was ACB’s 14th event. An amazing card was set up with some world class BJJ athletes, top Eastern European grapplers and high level MMA fighters.

ACB Berkut is becoming a big player in the Pro BJJ scene. They have had two big pro events in 2017, one in Los Angeles and the other in Warsaw, Poland, and this year have continued in the same way.

There is a massive 50% OFF  SALE on Video Instructionals at BJJ Fanatics, which feature quality instructionals from Tom DeBlass, Craig Jones, Dean Lister, Bernardo Faria and many more….(Type in the code ‘BJJEE” and you will receive a further 10% discount on your purchases)

Past events featured all the biggest stars in BJJ: Felipe Pena, Edwin Najmi, Davi Ramos, Luiz Panza, Vinny Magalhaes, Erberth Agazar, Alexander Trans, AJ Agazarm etc…

ACBJJ’s president Zaurbek Khasiev has been investing big amounts of money in BJJ over the years and he was disappointed with the stalling nature of many BJJ competitors who made for boring fights, and threatened to give up on Pro BJJ as a result:

DISAPPOINTED!!!
With the experience in organizing BJJ events i have discovered that most of the MMA fighters make much more entertaining scrambles than most of our BJJ fighters. I have been saying for awhile now that i don’t like them fighters giving up the entertainment of combat to get the win by the points. If things keep going this way we will probably no longer cooperate with most of our BJJ athletes and will no longer make BJJ super fights, instead we will concentrate on open BJJ tournaments. No one is interested in watching two guys hugging each other for 15-25 minutes without even attempting to spice up the battle or submit their opponent. BJJ will never gain new fans if the show is so boring.
Поздравляю всех братьев с отличными выступлениями, и благодарю всех за зрелищные схватки, все выступили очень зрелищно, и те кто проиграли, и те кто не попали на эти видео.
Спасибо всем☝🏻

He went on to specify:

[email protected] Kim that boring fights happened in 80 % fight in this year this post not after 1 event I’m very patient person but when you love bjj and see that you and all acb team put everything in their life to make our sport professional and give next level for all bjj athletes in the future and some guys don’t want to help us and make the show for the fights this is bad.

And proposed some rules changes:

[email protected] Change the rules & change the payment for win bonus make like if you win by decision you will get only 50% of your win bonus like was in 2017. Most of the guys on top 5 acb who have good payment don’t want to take a risk because they have 10k$ for the show 10k for the win and 3k for any submission and also we have bonuses for best fast sub and fight and for them better to get 10 for the win than try to risk get 3 more you understood what I try to say? My f*&king english not so good lol

5x World BJJ champion Bernardo Faria has developed the No Gi Half Guard. His submissions and sweeps works just as easily for No Gi, if not easier.
1.In No Gi there are not as many grips you can play. For example, you can’t play spider guard and the whole array of guards that stem from it. His guard works perfectly.
2.There are not a lot of grips your opponent can use to stop your sweep while playing No Gi. They can’t grab your collar, sleeve or pants obviously. Again, his guard works perfectly.
