The last supermatch on the 1st Jiu-Jitsu Expo program was announced this Wednesday. It will be a No-Gi bout between submission wizards Caio Terra and Jeff Glover, two of the most technical slight-framed fighters in the sport.
The two superstars are “old acquaintances.” Late in the year 2011, they had an exchange over Facebook where the discussion didn’t involve just Jiu-Jitsu techniques and ideology. Terra posted a comment about having won the 2011 No-Gi Worlds despite suffering from injuries, and Jeff showed up on his wall to remind him that he’s not the only one who gets hurt, that he should stop whining, and that he sounded like a parrot.
Caio responded right away, taunting Glover about rarely competing at and winning Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. Can this match-up get any spicier than that?
Now if you’re under the impression the attractions are limited to supermatches and seminars, there’s still time for more announcements. The promoters have more major, so far unannounced, events they’ll be adding to the menu for the May 12 Jiu-Jitsu fair, so stay tuned to GRACIEMAG.com.
One of the biggest components of the gentle-art fair is the IBJJF’s Spring Open, a tournament that will take place within the Expo, so there’s a chance you may be the big star of the day.
