Combat Jiu-Jitsu Worlds // The Middleweights – Live Results: Ryan Aitken Crowned Champion

The day after Medusa 1, jiu-jitsu fans get yet another high-octane event with Combat Jiu-Jitsu Worlds The Middleweights.

The rules are intended to make the matches as exciting as possible, and they guide the martial art away from sport jiu-jitsu and into situations that are closer to real-life scenarios. No points, no judges. The match can only end by submission or TKO, as open-handed striking is allowed while on the ground. If there are no finishes after the 10-minute regulation period, then the fighters will go into EBI overtime. 

“I had a dream that I won this”, Ryan Aitken said in his post-fight interview. He also sang praise to his Championship opponent, Derek Rayfield, “I knew he was tough as s—-, I knew I was gonna have a problem with the leg locks. He slapped the s—- out of me. Kids tough.”

When asked if he would consider moving up to the CJJ Light Heavyweight division, his response was an enthusiastic, “Abso-f***in’-lutely.”
