American black belt and 3x world champion Michael Musumeci has made history and broke a world record (yet to be confirmed by Guinness world records) that’s been unbeaten for the past 20 years.
And the fastest submission during an IBJJF male adult black belt final, goes to Michael Musumeci with 12 seconds at the 2019 IBJJF World Jiu-Jitsu Championship Finals in Long Beach California, USA on 2nd June 2019. Musumeci has been fully recognised by IBJJF and they have backed him up on his Guinness world record claim. Prior to Musumeci, Rodrigo ‘Comprido’ Medieiros held the record since 1999 with a record of 17 seconds when he also won the world championship. After two decades the record has finally been beaten and Musumeci now holds the record for fastest submission in the IBJJF Worlds finals history.
