The promoters of the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo are going all out for the maiden installment of the event. Around 10,000 fans are expected to crowd the pavilion in Long Beach, California, and they’ll be treated to attractions of all kinds.
For 15 dollars (the cost of tickets purchased in advance) participants gain access to seminars by Roger Gracie, Robert Drysdale, Ronaldo Jacaré and others; plus they’ll get to see the highly anticipated No-Gi showdown between Nick Diaz and Bráulio Estima.
WHO WILL KYRA GRACIE BE FACING? OUR READERS DECIDE
And the news just keeps on coming. Right after GRACIEMAG.com readers found out about the supermatch between Kayron Gracie and Rafael Lovato Jr., the organizing committee headed by Renzo Gracie confirmed another enticing competition-Jiu-Jitsu match-up: Victor Estima vs. Kron Gracie.
Bráulio’s brother recently overcame Kron in the middleweight semifinals of the 2012 Pan.
“Nick hosted Kron at his house in California, and they’re preparing for their matches for real,” said Cesar Gracie, the Diaz brothers’ teacher. What’s more, the two will be helping Nate Diaz get ready for his encounter with the game Jim Miller this May 5 at UFC on Fox.
To really raise the roof, Kyra Gracie‘s name was added to the list of combatants, in an female supermatch. The opponent, yet to be determined, may be an MMA fighter. So, gentle GRACIEMAG.com reader, take this opportunity to help the promoters out in banging the gavel: who do you think should be facing Kyra?
