Miranda Maverick, a seasoned UFC flyweight, recently won a silver medal in the IBJJF No Gi World Championship 2023…
Competing in the adult brown belt lightweight division!
Maverick triumphed in her first three matches, showcasing her skills with two Guillotine Choke submissions and a victory via decision.
She then had a challenging match against ATOS’s rising star Laura Sileci, where she narrowly missed the gold, losing on points.
She shared her excitement via social media:
I got 2nd which may seem huge and may seem small to some.
In the end, I am never happy losing even amongst the best in the world, BUT I could see huge improvements I’ve made in my jiu-jitsu game!
I had 4 matches & won 3 (2 by guillotine, the other by decision).
The finals I lost by points.
And, yes – it appears that Jiu-Jitsu is what got Maverick started on the journey of martial arts:
Although MMA is of course my focus, BJJ is what started me down this crazy road and I absolutely love testing my skills against the best.
If I want to be the best, I have to go up against the best.
