Check out the results from the 2015 BJJ world championships from Long Beach, California.

This past weekend, the IBJJF World Jiu-Jitsu Championship took place in Long Beach, California. While the championships saw a number of favourites take home gold there  were a number of talking points after the event, Two of the biggest stories to emerge were Leandro Lo entering the record books in spectacular fashion and Buchecha's tournament  cruelly ending early after he suffered an injury while defending a sweep against Ricardo Evangelista.
