The brackets with the eight remaining athletes, and which start this Sunday at 2 pm, feature a number of promising rivalries for the crowd at the Long Beach Pyramid to relish. (Keep up with it all in real time on Facebook or Twitter.

One contest in particular calls attention. It’s the one between superstars of the new generation and the established medal-winners, some of them having won their first World Championship titles over ten years ago.

Between the world champion veterans from a decade ago, some standouts are the absolute kings of yesteryear Rodrigo Comprido and Marcio Pé de Pano, and Leonardo Leite. There’s also Xande Ribeiro, who isn’t just the black belt world champion from 2001, he won it at brown in 2000 and came up with bronze in the absolute at black belt in 2002. There’s no denying it, one of the biggest stars of the old guard brings plenty of clout in as he seeks to terrorize the young bucks.

Mário Reis (featherweight), Gabriel Willcos (light featherweight), Gustavo Sirizinho (super heavyweight) and Carlos Holanda (light featherweight) are other familiar faces to the regulars in the stands at Jiu-Jitsu championships, another two who will try to teach the up-and-comers a thing or two.
