The Abu Dhabi WPJJ, coming up this April 13 and 14, is a professional tournament open to anyone at any belt. However, it’s plenty more enticing when you’re one of those invited by the prince. That’s a luxury few enjoy; better still, one reserved for those who advanced all the way through the different tryout events held all over the world, now on their way to compete in Abu Dhabi with all the regalia and all-expenses-paid travel.

GRACIEMAG.com gained exclusive access to the initial list of those invited to Abu Dhabi. A few names are notably missing, like the winners of the trials in New York, for example. If your name per chance didn’t make the list for whatever reason, contact the promoters of the qualifying event that you won,

Fireworks assured, given some of the names on the list, with Rodolfo Vieira, Marcus Bochecha, Bê Faria, Bráulio Estima, Alexandre Souza, Antonio Braga Neto, Leandro Lo, Roberto Satoshi, Jonathan Torres, Rafael Lovato and plenty more all scheduled for the main event. Check out the full list:
