It’s almost time for the strongest veterans in BJJ to let their competitiveness loose in Las Vegas at the 2019 World Master IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship.

The event, scheduled for Aug. 21–24, is already guaranteed to feature a whole bunch of talented folks, and Graciemag brings you the list.

Fighters who are already veterans of this sort of veterans’ competition will of course be there. I’m talking Wellington Megaton, Marco Barbosa, Cristiano Titi, Renato Babalu, Alexandre Soca and Marcos Parrumpinha, who will be joined by younger folks that already qualify as masters — Marcos Tinoco, Caio Almeida,  Raphael Iunes, Kim Terra, Claudia do Val and so on.
