Ryron Gracie vs. Andre Galvao

September 20, 2012

October 14, 2012 in San Diego

On October 14, 2012, Ryron will be competing in the Metamoris Pro Jiu-Jitsu Invitational against Andre Galvao in a 20-minute submission only match. Even though Ryron hasn't competed in almost 10 years, he thought it would be fun to test himself against one of the most accomplished competitors in the game. Andre is a 2x BJJ Black Belt World Champion, a 3x Pan American Black Belt Champion, and an ADCC Silver Medalist who is known for his aggressive submission game. Ryron looks forward to applying his "keep-it-playful" philosophy and believes that the submission-only format will make for a fun and educational experience for everyone. Win, lose, or draw, jiu-jitsu wins.

There are several exciting jiu-jitsu competitors on the card, including Roger Gracie, Marcus "Buchecha" Almeida, Kyron Gracie, Kron Gracie, Jeff Glover, Caio Terra, and more. For more information, go to Metamoris.comor checkout the sick countdown videos below.
