A turnaround in the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo 2013 brings the gentle art fans the chance to witness an epic battle of two aces without the gi.
Romulo Barral announced yesterday that a injury has forced him to pull out from his super fight against Leandro Lo.
Nevertheless, the replacement found by Renzo Gracie and his crew couldn’t be better.
UFC’s Jake Shields agreed to step in and fight Lo in a 15-minute no-gi match.
In addition, the organization confirmed the partial list of black belts who will be dueling in the GP on Sunday, Aug. 10 in the Expo.
The tournament will be the traditional kimono, with IBJJF rules.
