Originally reported Team Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu was the First Place Team at the 2015 IBJJF Masters.  The IBJJF has now push them to second place with the same number of points as Team Gracie Barra.

IBJJF is citing a error in their system.

Due to misplaced results on the day of the event, the final results by teams have been corrected in our system with the proper data.
Below are the updated results for the World Master Jiu-Jitsu IBJJF Championship 2015:
1st Gracie Barra – 259 pts
2nd Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu – 259 pts
3rd Gracie Elite Team – 136 pts

Wouldn’t it be a tie for first in this case with and equal number of points?  Why push Team Ribeiro previously announced winners to second with a tie score? what do you think? Comment bellow.
