    But sometimes fighters and/or their management count Copa Do Mundo victories as world championship wins too.

    It's a smaller competition put on by a smaller federation but it does have really good fighters fighting in it.

    Indeed, pity it never really gets the attention of the Mundials. Partly because it's not well known outside of the BJJ community, and partially because it's just fucking hard to find information on. They could at least give me their results for my thread. :mad:

    Oh, and on topic, Mundials worlds etc.
