Heads Up: The 2011 IBJJF World Jiu Jitsu Championships Are Under Way

(Cyborg Santos gives Amanda Lucas a guided tour of the mat)

Since the very beginning of our sport, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has been a critical component of Mixed Martial Arts competition (spoiler- Royce Gracie wins). Odds are good that unless you’re a diehard republican or an MMA judge, you share at least some appreciation for the subtle art of torquing limbs and rendering folks unconscious. Good news for you- the 2011 Mudials go down this weekend.

Competition in the lower belt rankings began on Thursday. In the video above you can check out Strikeforce’s 145lb women’s champion Cris Santos slam MMA fighter/George Lucas’s daughter Amanda Lucas in every manner possible en route to claiming a gold medal in the purple belt division. It is a little surprising that the most intimidating female fighter on the planet is competing as a purple belt, but not surprising enough that we would ask her about it to her face. ‘Grats to Cyborg for the medal and for finding a way to keep busy while her fighting career is inexplicably left to die on the vine.

For those of you whose thirst for action cannot be quenched by TUF Finales alone, you’re in luck. BudoVideos.com will be broadcasting the event live from Long Beach, California on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 9:00 a.m. PT. Saturday’s stream is free, but Sunday’s finals will set you back a cool $9.95. It’s a small price to pay to catch some of the world’s greatest submission artists go head to head.

Cyborgs lips= Gina carano's labia reduction.....
I wonder if she and evangelista get all baby -oiled up and have grapple-sex? I bet it's happened at least on four different occasions.
George Lucas was present in the audience and was bedazzled by her appearance needless to say, I'll bet 2 to 1 odds cyborg will be some sort of wookie character in the next star wars...
I'm watching total recall.

Ha, she was throwing that Lucas bitch around like a big ass heavy bag. All Lucas could do was pull guard all day.

She looks more like a pre-op Wanderlei, than Wanderlei.

Evans is a Bjj black belt!? I look at a lot of UFC black belts and find it hard to belive there black belts. im not saying i could beat them rolling, but some may have recived there BB a little to soon!

She may only be a purple belt but she knows how to throw down! I just wish she had more competition in MMA.

@ Fred - Rashad Evans is a top level BJJ black belt, though, right?
Fried Taco- June 4, 2011 at 1:02 pm
Maybe Cyborg is a purple belt because she trains with real BJJ instructors who don't give out black belts just because someone is a well-known MMA fighter. Just saying... you can't get away with pretending to be a black belt at Mundials, or any decent BJJ tournament. But watch out, the new breed of BJJ/wrestler is starting to make inroads, and will be taking over!

I think she could pull a reverse "Ladybugs" (movie) move and fight some of the boys. Urijah Faber catch weight, you're up.

also for the record, those throws are ridiculous. someone has been practicing...
CungwantsCookies- June 4, 2011 at 10:38 am
for the record, friedman wasnt a republican. and his son is even further into the libertarian end of the spectrum than he was

How crazy is it that Cyborg has no upcoming fight?
CrushCo- June 4, 2011 at 10:09 am
@RwilsonR- I'm pretty sure you're gay if you roll with her and get an erection, right?
RwilsonR- June 4, 2011 at 10:02 am
I'm a little confused by the rules in competition jiu-jitsu. If you are rolling with Cris Cyborg, is it gay if you make eye contact, or just awkward?
CrushCo- June 4, 2011 at 9:48 am
And it's a lack of dick jokes that's ruining this great Nation!

@pwdmarcello- Just curious, did you actually click the link? It's really about Chael Sonnen, not politics. Here's a promise: Next time Obama makes a comment about BJJ being gay, I'll link to that as well to balance the scales.
pwdmarcello- June 4, 2011 at 9:43 am
You are correct with your jab at Republicans! Comrade Obama, aka the One, has done such wonderful things for this country. Let's count the ways: unemployment at over 9% (just got to 9.1% and if you count people too discouraged to keep looking, it's near 16%), massive deficits and debt (this year alone the deficit will be around $1.5 trillion) and, of course, socialism with a take over of U.S. healthcare. The morons on this site will not understand that.

Why do I say socialism? Well, you have classic central planning with commissions controlling prices and who gets what.

But, don't worry it will all work out. But keep going after those Republicans! After all, you run an mma website. How can we doubt your wisdom on how to run a society. Economists like Hayek and Milton Friedman, Nobel prize winners, forget them. Just listen to neardowells who make dick jokes about mma fighters!
