The Miami Open is revving up, the big names are signing up, and the deadline for registration is this coming Saturday. While fans await news of who will be the new king of Florida – last year Luiz “Big Mac” beat Alexandro Ceconi in the absolute final, with Mike Fowler and Thiago Gaia rounding out the podium –, the IBJJF prepares to pay tribute.
The organizers’ idea is to have Rilion Gracie hand out diplomas to teachers who have helped the sport develop in Florida.
Among those to be honored are Daniel Nycz, Pablo Popovitch, Rodrigo Cavaca, Renato Tavares, Michel Porfirio, Marcos “Parrumpinha” da Matta, Mauricio Villardi, Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu, and Marcelo Araújo.
