IBJJF 2021 New Orleans Open Results – MMA Root



Brand new teacher Craig Jones

May 10, 2021, the PONTCHARTRAIN CONVENTION & CIVIC CENTER set the stage for the third edition of the IBJJF New Orleans Open, one of the top jiu-jitsu tournaments of the month and one of the last major events of the spring. The following is a description of the action and the sum of the results.

GI JIU-JITSU Tournament

Gracie Barra’s Austin Baker & Kieran Kichuk of TLI Steal The Show:

The first day of NOO featured some of the top grappers on the planet, including Richar Nogueira, Yago Souza and Caio Caetano. But from this ocean of veteran talent, it was two of America’s youngest black bands that made waves, namely Austin Baker and Kieran Kichuk.

The first to appear on the carpet was Kichuk, a product of Team Lloyd Irvin. Kieran proved to be a submission machine as a brown belt and maintains this tradition in the lead, running with a 100% finish in 3 tournaments as a black belt. In New Orleans, Kichuk set the pace very high on both Day 1 (gi) and Day 2 (nogi) with 4 appearances, including finishes for big names in the lightweight division, such as Alexandre Molinaro and Francisco Cuneo.

Later in the day, it was Austin Baker who came in. Baker dismantled one of Leandro Lo’s top black belts, Caio Caetano, twice on the same day (once in the extremely heavyweight division and later in the open class) and Giancarlo Bodoni in double gold.

NOGI JIU-JITSU Tournament

A dominant performance by Matheus Gabriel and Marvin Castell of the 10th planet

Without gi it was IBJJF World and Pans champion Matheus Gabriel who stood out. The Checkmat Texas athlete is not known for his home in Noggi very often, it was actually his first tournament in this set from the ADCC in September 2019, however, Gabriel had a racing day yesterday.

Traditionally a featherweight, Matheus chose to come in as a middleweight (79 kg), a division where he submitted both Tyler Scalisi and Michael Trasso. Not happy with a gold medal, Matheus decided to enter the lightweight category. There he defeated the dangerous super heavyweight Tex Johnson, as well as Francisco Cuneo and Diego Ramalho.

Another pleasant surprise at the New-Orleans No-Gi Open was the 10th planet Marvin Castell. The talented grappler won gold with two submission victories and a particularly strong performance against one of the top athletes of the IBJJF rankings, Richar Nogueira.
