The US Open Jiu-Jitsu championship will only happen in October, but the athletes are already setting their schedules (and training) to put on a show when the time comes in San Jose, California.

This weekend, another big name confirmed he’ll be there, at the tournament promoted by our GMA Claudio França. He’s none other than Soul Fighters academy’s Rafael “Formiga” Barbosa, the winner of the absolute division at the IBJJF’s NY Open. Besides Formiga, the other big name set to be there is Francisco Mansur (Kioto), an Helio Gracie red belt.

The US Open, now reaching its 16th installment, will take place at the famed San Jose State University campus, founded in 1857, at its gymnasium with a capacity to seat 5,000 people comfortably.
