Buchecha is the first of eight athletes confirmed.

The already traditional IBJJF Pro League GP, which gathers the biggest heavyweight stars and awards its champions thousands of dollars, has its next edition now confirmed — and with new stuff too.

The event, which will take place at Evexia Fit Fest, is scheduled for Aug. 24, and this time gis are not welcome. The prize pool is enticing — 40,000 dollars for the champion and 10,000 for the runner-up.

The competition remains a sudden death affair, starting with the eight fighters matched up in a quarterfinal phase and proceeding until there’s only one man standing. Marcus Buchecha’s is the only name confirmed on the roster at this point.

On social media, after the announcement of the event, several names were suggested by fans, including Mahamed Aly, João Gabriel Rocha and Roberto Cyborg, as well as absolute no-gi world champion Gordon Ryan.

Who do think are the seven most deserving fighters to challenge Buchecha (or just the seven that would produce the most interesting spectacle)? Let us know.
