With 50,000 USD on the line, the IBJJF Pro League GP 2016 will go down this Saturday, June 9, in Las Vegas, gathering eight Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu aces:
On the right-hand side of the bracket, Marcus Buchecha will face Bruno Bastos, and the winner will fight a semifinal with the victor in a match between Felipe Pena and João Gabriel.
Xande Ribeiro leads the left side of the bracket, competing against Mahamed Ali. Leonardo Nogueira vs. Alexandro Ceconi completes the line-up.
"History will be written this upcoming Saturday," says Ribeiro. "Not just because the prize is fair but because it will be a match of different generations. I will throw 25 years of Jiu-Jitsu against opponents who were wearing diapers when I started. It's time to burn the bridges and look towards the future."
Buchecha is also very motivated with the prize money. "The most important title is the Worlds, but I am stoked to be given a chance to compete for 40,000 dollars," he says.
The event will be broadcast live and for free by the IBJJF Facebook page and will start at 11 a.m. PST on Saturday, June 9.
