The good news keeps coming for the Jiu-Jitsu fans with a chance at checking out the inaugural World Jiu-Jitsu Expo this coming May 12 in Long Beach, California. This 1st of May two more supermatches were added to the program—with two fair-faced grappling aces and two wizards of the gi.
Kyra Gracie, a sport Jiu-Jitsu star decorated many times over and three-time ADCC champion, will shed her gi yet again to take on Alexis Davis, a fighter on the Strikeforce roster trained by Cesar Gracie.
(Check out the Jiu-Jitsu brown belt in action against Amanda Nunes.)
Now in sport Jiu-Jitsu, with the gi, the veteran Nino “Elvis” Schembri will be making his return against the no-less-dazzling Bill Cooper, a bout that wouldn’t surprise this journalist if it ends 65 to 61 for either one of the two stars.
Also on the menu for the Jiu-Jitsu Expo, the IBJJF Special Spring Tournament promises heaps of action. Already confirmed for the competition are fighters the likes of Otávio Sousa, the winner of the NY Open absolute division, as well as Rodrigo Simões, Gustavo “Sirizinho”, Ricardo “Franjinha”, Magid Hage and plenty of others.
