STACK-O-MATIC!! NO-WORLDS BLACK BELT MIDDLEWEIGHT DIVISION!
Look at the list of competitors in the black belt middleweight division. Now look at yourself. You're probably filled with an unhealthy combination of self-loathing and delusional inspiration. Good!!
Before you run off to sign up for privates with Rickson and/or Frank Dux, take a moment to register just how ridiculously perilous this division is. The possibilities for super-star match-ups are almost as thrilling as the time you pitted your Boba Fett action figure against your sister's My Little Pony collection. And, you know how that turned out.
This division alone is yet another reason you need to watch the No-Gi Worlds this weekend (either in-person or online). You can go back to scrapbooking with your grandmother next week.
Footnote: A word João Assis. I neglected to mention him in my last post on No-Gi Worlds. He's technical and huge (super heavy) and is coming off big victories over both Xande and Saulo Ribeiro this year. Definitely a contender for Open Class Gold. If you see him, do not approach him - he may heel hook you on the spot.
