Espen vs Gareth

2017 Copenhagen Open

Middleweight Final

Copenhagen, Denmark

Espen Mathiesen vs Gareth Neale

Like his teammate Tommy Langaker,  Espen Mathiesen (Blue Gi) is another burgeoning Jiu Jitsu player from Norway.  He had a break out 2018 by winning the Jiu Jitsu World Pro in April (3 of his 5 matches ended by submission, including the final against Jake Mackenzie), then followed it up with a 3rd place at the Worlds in June at Lightweight (he lost in the semi-finals to multiple world champion, never gets scored, never gets submitted, Lucas Lepri only by an advantage).

He is constantly on the attack, always hunting for a submission, which is why he is another player to pay attention to.
