Gordon Ryan is one of the most famous faces in competitive Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Not only is he a member of one of grappling’s most dangerous teams, the Danaher Death Squad, but he is a four-time EBI Champion, three-division EBI Champion, IBJJF Champion, and ADCC Champion.

Vinny Magalhaes, however, also has some impressive credentials. An ADCC and IBJJF Champion himself, Magalheas has stood toe-to-toe with some of the biggest names in BJJ. He even defeated Marcus Almeida “Buchecha” — widely considered one of the greatest competitive grapplers — via heel hook.

Needless to say, Vinny Magalhaes is not going to be make it easy for Gordon Ryan, nor is Ryan going to make it easy for him.
