Although the second edition of the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo will be in November, on 9 and 10, the temperature of the event has already started to heat up.

Days after training with surfing idol Kelly Slater, the absolute world champion Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida met with the organization and will participate in a superfight at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California.

The best is that the Expo, designed by Renzo Gracie, wants the people to choose how star Buchecha must fight the beast. Do you have any guesses? Who do you think should face Buchecha the 2013 World Jiu-Jitsu absolute champion?

The news was released ten days after the announcement that Rodolfo Vieira will also participate in the Jiu-Jitsu Expo in another one of the supermatches.

The people, represented by the readers of GRACIEMAG, listed several suggestions for Rodolfo’s opponent. André Galvão, Frank Mir, Leandro Lo, Fabricio Werdum and Vinny Magalhaes.

And against Buchecha? You decide. The organization promises to reveal soon and secure the supermatches for the Expo. For now, only Jeff Glover vs. Bruno Malfacine is confirmed.
