So the smoke has finally cleared from an explosive 2012 Mundial Championship. As always, the nail-biting suspense left people wondering how the IBJJF can top themselves next year. This year, without a Roger Gracie presence, there was a new crowned prince of the absolute division, Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida!

Today’s Match of the Week features a no-gi match between the superfast Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida vs one of the top American black belts coming out of Lloyd Irvin’s school, Jimmy Harbison. This battle took place at the semi-finals of the 2011 No-Gi Worlds, absolute division.

Enjoy the match.
