WPJJC 2015 predictions

posted in: bjj, brazilianjiujitsu, wpjjc 0

This week the World Pro Jiu Jitsu Cup in Abu Dhabi has started. The tournament is being promoted as the largest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu event in the world.

Most Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments are being organized by the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (IBJJF), this tournament however is organized by the UAE Jiu-Jitsu Federation (UAEJJF). A huge difference with IBJJF tournaments is that the UAEJJF rewards its competitors with prize money for the medal winners. Since its inaugaral tournament in 2009 it has attracted a lot of high level competitors from all over the world. In the past we have seen the likes of: Rodolfo Vieira, Mendes Brothers, Marcus Buchecha, Lucas Leite, Michelle Nicolini, Gabi Garcia, Cobrinha, Marcelo Garcia and a lot more.
