If there is one thing people love it is a fight with a dramatic storyline. And we have one of those that could be one of the biggest Jiu Jitsu fights Canada has ever seen. Maybe even North America.

I think the guys over at Grapplers Quest have summed it up perfectly so this is full credit to Brian Cimins over at

LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA: Grapplers Quest signs a Blockbuster Superfight for the ages at Canada's first ever Grapplers Quest event on Saturday, October 30th in London, Ontario, Canada. Multiple-time ADCC (Abu Dhabi) and CBJJ World Champion Saulo Ribeiro will face off against the World's Best Grappler 2010, Joao Assis.

History behind this EPIC match...back on Sunday, July 11th, 2010 at Tachi Palace's "World's Best Grappler" tournament with $10,000 first place prize, Joao Assis defeated Alexandre "Xande" Ribeiro (Saulo's younger brother) in the finals to capture the title in one of the best matches of ALL-TIME at Grapplers Quest.

Saulo Ribeiro, Xande's brother, mentor and training partner immediately wanted a match against Joao Assis to ultimately avenge his brother's defeat in the respectful way of a true grappling samurai. This match will be epic and has the storyline to be one of the greatest matches of all time. LEGEND vs. CHAMPION, JOAO ASSIS vs. SAULO RIBEIRO, live, Saturday, October 30, 2010 at Grapplers Quest in London, Ontario, Canada

more information on tickets and competitor registration. that knee pop still gets me..

Nevertheless - I'm excited to be apart of this. I don't think I have ever been involved in something like essence

Toronto BJJ and Ribeiro Jiu Jitsu are going to war and now the head of the Army is going to be on the battle field with all of the soldiers fighting. And this time. It's personal. ;)


I wonder who else will be joining us from our association?

Any guesses?
