2016 FloGrappling Jiu-Jitsu Rankings (Black Belt / Male / Gi)

March 2016, Lightweight Rankings (76kg / 168lb)

nullThe most movement of any category this month took place in the stacked lightweight division. There were some big names missing from Pans, which left the door wide open for young black belts to shine.

Edwin Najmi jumped from #13 to #4 after a stunning run at Pans, where he submitted Francisco 'Sinistro' in the final (who enters the rankings at 6). Michael Liera Jr had a tremendous back and forth match with Najmi and so combined with his Euro gold medal form earlier this year goes in at #5.

In other news, JT Torres has moved up to middleweight and so has been removed from the ranking, while we should see AJ Agazarm climb back up the rankings now his suspension from IBJJF events is up.
