Worlds has always been the focus of every competitor– it's the dream of any serious jiu-jitsu athlete to be crowned world champion, regardless of their belt color. Worlds is the most prestigious and difficult tournament to win, with many top athletes skipping other major tournaments to focus entirely on the challenge that will face them at the Walter Pyramid in Long Beach, California. 

With over 20 years of history, the IBJJF World Championships has seen some of the most memorable matches and moments in jiu-jitsu history. Who can forget Buchecha's epic absolute-winning performances with showdowns against Joao Gabriel Rocha, Leandro Lo and others, or great champions such as Hall of Famers Lucas Lepri, Romulo Barral, Rafael Mendes and many more.
