2019 European Championships
Open Class Quarter Final
Lucas Lepri vs Seif Houmine
Lucas Lepri is King of the Lightweights. Just a few weeks ago, Lucas attained his 6th world title at that weight, more than anyone in history of IBJJF competition. In addition to his 6 worlds, he has 4 Pan titles and 1 European title.
He is well known to be one of the best guard passers in the game, but more impressively he rarely is scored on (and only been submitted twice in his career.)
This match was one of my favorites from the 2019 Europeans. Lucas entered the Open Class, in addition to his weight class, and his second match with Seif was a true test of our overused adage that “Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will give a smaller person the ability to beat a bigger, stronger opponent.”
As I watched this, I couldn’t help comparing it to a nature show about Koala Bears. Vicious, rabid, choking Koala Bears.
