It was a day of upsets and close matches as new ADCC World Champions where crowned.

Highlighting what was a spectacular year was Mackenzie Dern, who faced 2013 champion Michelle Nicolini in a hard fought match in the finals. They ended the match ties, but a penalty point for Nicolini sealed the win for Dern who wins her first under 60kg ADCC World title. This was the first time an American has won the title.

Dern defeated Beatriz Mesquita by points in the semi-finals. Nicolini defeated Tammy Musucemi in the other under 60kg semi-final.

Musucemi would get the rear naked choke over Mesquita to take the bronze.

Ana Laura Cordeiro became the new 2015 over 60kg champ defeating Jessica Oliveira by points in the finals.
