The pride of Diamantina, Brazil, Romulo Barral became a four-time world champion this past June and a member of the Jiu-Jitsu Hall of Fame.
With plenty of credentials, the black belt medium-heavyweight of Gracie Barra was invited to star in one of the superfights of the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo, which takes place November 9 and 10 in Long Beach, California.
But this won’t be just any match-up. According to information provided by the organizers, Barral’s opponent will be a world champion as well, in a fight that’s shaping up to be one of the Expo’s biggest draws.
Romulo joins the Expo’s ranks alongside the likes of Marcus Buchecha, Rodolfo Vieira and Caio Terra. In other confirmed superfights, João Miyao faces Samuel Braga, whereas Jeff Glover takes on Bruno Malfacine.
The Jiu-Jitsu Expo will offer more than ten free seminars, with Rafael and Guilherme Mendes, Ryron and Rener Gracie, and others to be announced. Idols like Rickson and Royce Gracie will also be there taking pictures and giving autographs.
