London, England will host a new event of superfights, the Toukon Jiu-Jitsu. The tournament brings a card stuffed with beasts of the competitive landscape and with some submission only matches.

The black belt Lucio “Lagarto” Rodrigues is confirmed in the main fight of the event, but still has no opponent. The athlete from Gracie Barra would face Jackson Sousa, but the Checkmat fighter had an infection in his leg that prevented him from fighting.

For the co-event of the night, Felipe Mota (Roger Gracie) faces Luke Costello (Gracie Barra). Felipe teaches Jiu-Jitsu at Roger Gracie’s academy in Norway, and his favorite game is the De la Riva guard. Collector of medals in the IBJJF circuit, Luke has an explosive game: he likes takedowns and guard passing.

The other Superfights of the night are:

Thomas Oyarzun (Alliance) x Chris Boww (GB) – to finish

Alex Cabanes (Claudio Calasans) x Gabriel Rainho – to finish

Dorragh O’Conaill (Ribeiro Jiu-Jitsu) x Maciej Kozak (Grappling Krakãw) – to finish

Eduardo Rios (Frontline) x Luca Anchorite (Aeterna Jiu-Jitsu) – to finish
