I lost in the Semi finals to gold medalists , Hassen Moussa who is a BJJ Brown belt and was in the 2000 Olympic 's in Sydney for Judo (making it to the 7th round). Overall this was an amazing competition, really showing the level of commitment the leaders of the gulf have in investing money to BJJ. The ahtletes here, many of them were professional soldiers training with private lessons from BJJ BB's on daily training regiments...for free..because the Kingdom sponsors them. -Ray
