Live Updates: The Ultra Heavyweight Division

All eyes are on Gordon Ryan at the 2018 IBJJF World No-Gi Championship as he matches up against Mahamed Aly, Yuri Simoes, Cyborg and more in the Ultra Heavyweight division. We'll be uploading top matches from this division in real-time until a king is crowned on the final day of competition. 


MAHAMED ALY vs JOHN LESLIE HANSEN 

Aly cruised through his opening-round match vs. John Hansen. The win here moves him into the quarterfinals and sets up a much-anticipated rematch vs. ADCC champion, Gordon Ryan. 


MAX GIMENIS vs MARCUS SALERNO

Max Gimenis dominates in his opening-round match to move into the quarterfinals vs. ADCC Trials winner, Tex Johnson.


GORDON RYAN vs EVANGELOS MOUMTZIS

Gordon frickin' Ryan! The ADCC champ puts 47 points on the board before landing the armbar submission vs. Evangelos Moumtzis. The win moves him into the quarterfinals where he'll face defending IBJJF champ, Mahamed Aly. 



UPDATE: Mahamed Aly hurt his ribs in his opening-round match vs. John Hansen and will not be able to compete further into the tournament. The scratch gives Gordon Ryan the victory by default, which will move him into the semifinals vs. the winner of the Yuri Simoes vs. Jared Dopp match.



MAX GIMENIS vs AARON "TEX" JOHNSON

Holy cow, Max Gimenis is on a tear! He runs right through ADCC Trials winner, Tex Johnson, and is now expected to face the Cyborg/Gustavo Elias winner in the Ultra Heavyweight semifinals. 


ROBERTO "CYBORG" ABREU vs GUSTAVO ELIAS

What a match! A single advantage gets Cyborg past a game Gustavo Elias in the Ultra Heavyweight quarterfinals. He'll be taking on an "on-fire" Max Gimenis next in the semifinals. A superfight vs. the Gordon Ryan/Yuri Simoes-winner looms... 


SITUATION AFTER DAY 1

Winning fighters bolded in black.


ROBERTO "CYBORG" ABREU vs MAX GIMENIS

Oh my gosh, powerful indeed. Cyborg goes full BEAST MODE here with the takedown and forceful mat returns before eventually passing Gimenis' guard late in the fight. He'll take on Gordon Ryan in the Ultra Heavyweight finals in one of the most-anticipated no-gi fights of the year. 


GORDON RYAN vs YURI SIMOES

Gordon Ryan over Yuri Simoes, 11-0. The dude's on a different freaking level. 


ROBERTO "CYBORG" ABREU vs GORDON RYAN 

Long live the king. Gordon Ryan reigns supreme in the Ultra Heavyweight division.
