The Combat Jiu-Jitsu welterweight world championship 2023 took place on March 26th, 2023 and there were a ton of exciting results from the matches that took place. The promotion managed to put together a fantastic lineup that was stacked with sixteen top competitors in the division, with each of them being more than capable of leaving with the title. Alongside the world championship tournament bracket was a pair of superfights, including one featuring Bellator and PFL veteran Ian Butler. He lost in EBI overtime to Angel Villegas, while Mike John submitted Jacob Small in regulation time.
Andrew Tackett was on absolute fire at the event as he submitted his first three opponents in a combined 6 minutes and 15 seconds, with the third coming after an epic short match with Davis Asare. Tackett’s opponent in the final, Alan Sanchez, was just as impressive on his way to meet him. Sanchez also submitted all three of his opponents and he actually did it even quicker in just 3 minutes and 44 seconds. Both men were incredibly fresh coming into the final of the Combat Jiu-Jitsu Welterweight world championship and they engaged in a war that lasted the entire regulation time and every round of EBI overtime, with Tackett being declared the winner by fastest escape time when the results were read.
