“The highlight of the night was brother-sister duo Rodolfo and Ana Vieira winning in their respective categories, which really proves why equality is so important,” Black Belt CBD CEO Krista Whitley said. “Same genetics, same training – and they both took home top billing.”
Legendary Jiujitsu champion and instructor Robert Drysdale offered commentary during the historic event and highlighted how the Black Belt CBD Invitational sent a strong message to the community.
“This is the first time in the history of Jiujitsu and UFC that I know of where women were paid an equal purse to men,” said Drysdale said.
The tournament was powered by the team at Black Belt CBD, a woman-founded and woman-led company that specializes in CBD-based performance-training products made for serious athletes of all genders.
“Jiujitsu is a huge part of our culture and even my family – my daughter loves to train Jiujitsu – and we wanted to bring the brightest names in the men’s and women’s divisions under one roof for a big event that celebrated their wins equally,” Whitley said. “In just 25 days, from idea to execution, the Black Belt CBD team pulled off an exciting event with the world’s top Jiu Jitsu grapplers. We can’t wait to host our next event to go bigger and better every single time.”
