With three of the greatest competitors to ever grace a mat confirmed for the IBJJF Pro League in August, it’s time to get excited. Two of them — Roger Gracie and André Galvão — once fought in an absolute world championship match, back in 2008. In this semifinal encounter, Galvão nearly swept and endangered Gracie’s back. However, the Blanket managed to get free and stay on top, to get started on his smothering side control game that netted him enough points for the win.
