On Saturday June 11th, the Sapateiro Invitational returns with its second installment of their Submission Only tournament series.
This event features a 175lb 20 Minute Submission Only Super Fight between Eddie Bravo Invitational 6 Champion: Gordon Ryan, and UFC Vet, ADCC Vet, and longtime black belt Vagner Rocha.
In the first installment of the Sapateiro Invitational we saw Gordon Ryan rise to prominence by submitting all four of his opponents in record time and in the finals finishing multiple time ADCC Vet Enrico Cocco by heel hook.
This event is sure to uncover one of the future stars of grappling, and is something grappling fans will not want to miss.
The 175lb welterweight tournament draws from competitors from around the globe that will come and battle under EBI rules for their shot at cash prizes.
Unlike EBI, all competitors who win their match by submission will be paid, not just the champion.
