Two of jiu-jitsu’s most prominent promotions have partnered up to offer an exciting experience for standout competitors in Houston.
Grappling Industries has announced that on October 5 of this year, their Houston tournament will feature two special brackets for athletes looking to showcase their talent on one of the hottest new stages in BJJ: 3rd Coast Grappling. The male and female winner of each bracket at GI Houston will earn a spot in a superfight at 3CG’s October 26 event, plus get their GI registration fees refunded. In a social media post, GI has also announced that winners from other absolute gi divisions at their October 5 event will receive free tickets to 3CG’s much-hyped December 7 event, which will feature Gordon Ryan vs. Felipe Pena as the main event.
3CG’s October event will also be an exciting card to be featured on. Promoter Ryan McGuire has revealed that the main event will see Lucas Valente going up against Bill “The Grill” Cooper. Valente won silver at Worlds earlier this year, and Cooper was a World Champion as a brown belt. The co-main event will feature up-and-coming standouts Pedro Marinho and Roberto Jimenez.
