The names of some medal collectors have already started to show up on the americancupbjj.com website, like Carlos Diego (Amazonas BJJ), Ryan Clark (Megaton), Carlos Melo, Garth Taylor and Nathan Mendelsohn, all from the team of event promoter Claudio França.
“The favorites are popping up and this week of the final stretch a lot more will appear. You just have to keep an eye on the site, since we’re updating twice a day,” recounts Claudio. “So far what stands out is the number of kids – last year we had more than 200 in the kids division, and this year we expect 300 will be fighting on the first day, Saturday. It will be a big party; all competitors will be given a copy of GRACIEMAG; Sambazon açaí and Silvio’s BBQ will be there.”
The event will be covered by GRACIEMAG and is to be preceded by a rules seminar led by Alvaro Mansor. Check out the timetable:
