Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida and André Galvão have signed on the dotted line to compete at the IBJJF Pro League GP. Two of the biggest names in the sport will compete for a 40K grand prize in what is already looking to be among the year’s biggest BJJ events.
This is the 2nd installment of the Pro League’s 8-man tournament, and this time there are different weight divisions. To make things more competitive, only 1st and 2nd places get cash prizes. This gi tournament is under the IBJJF ruleset, with 10-minute matches.
The Pro League is part of the The Evexia Fit Fest, which will take place Aug. 24 through 26 in Las Vegas. Nevada, alongside the Masters World Championship.
