The IBJJF Pro League made its debut in December 2012 as the first of its kind to use ranking and offer prize money. With the IBJJF Long Beach Fall Open on the same day, black belts could qualify for the Pro League should they win their divisions. This year will be a little different.
The date is set for December 8 at the famed location, the Long Beach Walter Pyramid. So far on the website it shows the categories, that are combined to make only four total, and the four spots open in each. You can see the athletes who are confirmed and when you click on their pictures a complete profile of their ranking breakdown will show.
Some of the athletes include Caio Terra, Otavio Sousa, Andre Galvao, Ricardo Evangelista.
More information will be available regarding confirmed athletes, livestream and more so stay tuned.
