CJJW: The Featherweights just got real interesting.
After winning the 10th Planet Qualifiers, Ben Eddy will be heading to Mexico for Combat Jiu-Jitsu Worlds: The Featherweights.
He’ll be joining a stacked line-up of competitors such as Elias Anderson, Michael Wacker, Gabriel Austin Daffron, Zack Schneider, Chris Lencioni, Dillon Masington, Cody Owens, David Weintraub, Jordan Holy, David Acuña, Estevan Martinez, Keith Krikorian, and more.
The Rubber Guard Assassin is no stranger to the CJJ mat, holding wins against names such as Nick Honstein, David Weintraub, Randy Villarreal, and James Barnes.
Eddy is excited to compete at 145, avoiding the brutal weight cut that he’s endured for his 135 lb matches. This will be his first CJJ at Featherweight. Now the card holds two Bantamweight champions in Elias Anderson and Ben Eddy.
The event streams on UFC Fight Pass on Sunday, December 19 at 3 p.m. PT
