On January 13, Copa Pódio treated Rio de Janeiro to another explosive Grand Prix event, where Rodolfo Vieira beat the likes of Xande Ribeiro, Léo Nogueira, Alexandre Souza and Keenan Cornelius.
The next Copa event is already scheduled: again in Rio de Janeiro, on May 5, the Lightweight Grand Prix will be held.
“The local crowd in Rio de Janeiro’s acceptance of the Heavyweight GP caused us to change our minds and hold another event in Rio before heading to other states”, explains Jeferson Mayc, the promoter.
Besides the lightweight GP, there will be a riveting match featuring GFTeam star Rodolfo Vieira. “We’ve already picked Rodolfo’s opponent, and we’ll announce who it is in the coming days. One clue I can offer is that it’s not Bochecha, if just because they’re bound to face off at the Abu Dhabi WPJJC in April,” says Maycá.
Watch the Heavyweight GP final, between Rodolfo and Léo Vieira, the 11th time the two meet on the mat, and share your prediction: who’ll Rodolfo’s superopponent be in May? Stay tuned to GRACIEMAG.com for further information.
