A last minute Fight Night Combat tournament, organized by Asaf More at the Brussels Juggling Convention, means only 200 points were available for the winner, but the field was very strong, with four previous tournament winners taking part. 13 jugglers entered the qualifications, including the top ranked Belgian and French players and the third highest ranked German.
Despite qualifying as the second seed, Sander VanPraet's run of bad form continued, as he lost in the first round to Asaf More. Sander won the last tournament in Belgium, at DumboDays 2014, and came second at the WJW 2015 in March, but hasn't won a knockout match in his five tournaments since.
Matthieu Griselle won the Bibasse 2015 tournament, but had to settle for third in Brussels, beating Asaf 5-1 in the third place match.
Top ranked French juggler Leo Platz won in Aachen this year, and came second at the HJW 2015 in October. For the second tournament in a row, Leo was runner up, losing in the final match 0-5.
And the winner? Remaining undefeated in his three final matches this year was Andreas Braun. With his win in Brussels, Andreas remains at number seven in both the FNC 52 week rankings and the 2015 race rankings, despite Florian Marienfeld's and Alexander Müller's strong results in Cottbus this past weekend.
