19th Mundials of the Modern Era (1996 - )
Of the 180 Male black belt golds won since 1996, Gracie Barra & offshoots have won 56 gold, Alliance & offshoots have won 53 gold, Gracie Humaita have won 22 golds, Nova Uniao have won 13 golds and Carlson Gracie Team & offshoots have won 11 gold
Most Finals 1: Roger Gracie had been in his weight category final 7 years in a row, winning all 7
Most Finals 2: Roger Gracie had been in the Absolute final 8 years in a row, winning 3
Gracies: The Gracies have 14 Mundials titles, but only through 2 family members, Roger with 10 and Royler with 4.
In a Row 1: Roberto “Roleta” and Cobrinha have both won the Pan Ams and the Mundials 3 years in a row.
In a Row 2: Royler, Robson, Bruno and Cobrinha have won their divisions 4 years in a row.
In a Row 3: Saulo won a different weight division 4 years in a row (1997 - 2000 Medio, Pesado, Meio Pesado, Super Pesado).
Biggest Trophy Cabinet 1: Only 4 men have won 10 or more medals at Black Belt: Xande Ribeiro (13), Roger (13), Saulo Ribeiro (10) and Rodrigo “Comprido” (10)
Oh Brother 1: Xande & Saulo Ribiero, Leo & Ricardo Vieira, Roberto & Rafael Correa (aka gordinho & Gordo) and Gui & Rafa Mendes are all brothers who have been world champion.
Oh Brother 2: Gui & Rafa Mendes are the only ones of the 3 brothers who have been world champion simultaneously and they have achieved this feat twice
A Double Double: A number of well-known players have come close with 3 out of 4 titles, but only Rodolfo Vieira (2011) and Marcus “Buchecha” (2012, 2013) have ever held double gold at the Pans and Mundials in the same calendar year.
Seven Year Itch: Biggest gap between titles was shared by Robson Moura who won his 4th title in 2000 and his 5th in 2007 and by Gabriel Vella, who took his first in 2002 and his most recent in 2009 but last year Gabriel Moraes took his 2nd title in 2013, 9 years after his maiden black belt tile in 2004.
All your base are belong to us: In recent years we have grown accustomed to seeing Alliance take a number of the Black Belt Titles each year, but the most dominant performance was 2002 when Gracie Barra took 8 of the available 10 Gold.
Two’s company: Only two non-Brazilians have ever taken Black Belt Gold at the Mundials, former UFC Champion BJ Penn in 2000 and Rafael Lovato Jr in 2007 (a year he did the Grand Slam, winning all 4 IBJJF Majors).

Good stuff as usual. I agree with most of your picks but I'm a bit surprised you don't Have Satoshi at lightweight. If I remember correctly his record is really good against both Langhi and Lepri. Also, I'm a bit surprised to see you have Yuri Simoes over Bernardo.
Love your stats man!
Yep, thanks for doing this J Sho!
Was waiting for this, thanks!
Good picks but a couple surprises, such as leaving Paulo out of the final for Light-Feather, as well as leaving Keenan out of the semi's for Medium Heavy.
Great read, thanks J Sho.
great post. KUDOS!
Interesting you have Santana beating Keenan. I don't see it. I think Keenan will make it to the semis and lose to Braulio or Barral (don't know which he'd fight, haven't seen the brackets).
Thanks for the write up! Did the Miyaos do the absolute at pans?
Didn't see them do it
