As we come to a close with our eighteen reasons to support/follow/enter the 2013 World Championship May 29 – June 2, we ask you this question: Will we see the greatest match ever?
This motivation arrives from the match in 2012 between Rodolfo Vieira and Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida in the open weight black belt division. This match-up was highly anticipated being that Buchecha was a rising star and Rodolfo was the most popular name on the BJJ crowd’s tongue. With both gentleman making a scene in their own right, the clash was a beautiful sight to see on the mats of the Long Beach Walter Pyramid.
I won’t spill too much because if you haven’t seen the duel yet, it will get you to jump off your seat, find a gi and get to training right away. Full intensity, with a passion for submission is the driving force in this match and there were no stalling calls, no hesitations and no passivity. Therefore, it will always make you want to train, regardless of whether you’ve seen it before.
So be at the Worlds (or watching the livestream) to be there for perhaps the next big match to be considered the greatest match ever. Do you think this one can be topped? Let us know below!
