Former UFC fighter Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares already knows when and where he’s fighting again.
It will be in the second World Jiu-Jitsu Expo, in Long Beach, on November 9–10.
The explosive Team Nogueira athlete has signed a deal to fight in a 20-minute, no-points, no-gi match to be decided only via submission.
Who would you like to see square off against Toquinho? Will some big star step forth to try and tame the former cowboy? Talk about it here!
The Renzo Gracie-organized fair has confirmed it is selecting athletes promoted to black belt no earlier than two years ago for a GP.
Another big attraction should be the announcement of a Jiu-Jitsu/UFC star within the next few days.
