Andrew Wiltse is one of the best grapplers in the world and although he’s able to compete on the biggest stages, he seems to be enjoying competing in local tournaments to stay fresh as of late and has even set a phenomenal record at the Fuji BJJ Missouri State Championships. He was recently seen competing at the Nuway Combat Tournament and managed to win every single match in style, cruising to victory over a field of black belts that were clearly not in the same league as him. Now, he’s decided to get in even more practice before his upcoming match against Gabriel Almeida on the next Who’s Number One card and shockingly, he put on an even better performance again.
Understandably, the local grapplers competing at the event really didn’t have much of a chance against a man who’s ranked within the top ten in his weight division on the planet, and has only been climbing the rankings with impressive wins lately. Regardless, it’s still surprising to see the sheer margin by which Wiltse was able to defeat one of his opponents when he managed to put a stunning 75 points up on the board while his opponent wasn’t able to score a single one against him. He recently discussed his mental preparation for competition with Gordon Ryan and Bernardo Faria, and it seems as though his tactics must be foolproof given how incredible his performance was.
The footage of Andrew Wiltse securing his stunning 75-0 victory and setting a record at the Fuji BJJ Missouri State Championships was uploaded to his official YouTube channel:
Wouldn’t that be sort of ….sandbagging?
isn’t that called sandbagging?
It would only be sandbagging if he CLAIMED to be weaker than he actually is (fake name, entering as a lower belt etc). This being said, it’s still rather mean to score so many points instead of just submitting the opponent. Surely if you’re so much in control, you are perfectly capable of submitting. Refraining from this is poor sportsmanship in my opinion – as much as I respect the skill itself. It’s technically instructive, but not a great example to follow. You shouldn’t make a mockery out of your opponent. Could you imagine an immortal legend like Roger Gracie doing something like that? No, because it’s immature. That’s how I see it at least.
