Although I don't think that the competitors in this event are the best purple belts in the world (nor is it fair to call this the purple belt version of Master Lloyd's Brown Belt Kumite), it's great for the sport to have tournaments like this.

So who are you guys picking to win it all? I'm going with Michael Liera Jr.

Liera is a good choice but he has a tough opponent in windson. The winner fights the winner of edwin and wayne.

Interesting pick of Jacob. Isn't he kinda small? I would say that Liera, you, and Najmi are the only ones that win consistently at the world tournaments, so you guys would have to be the three favorites in this tournament.

It also would have been nice if Nick Schultz and Denilson from Atos were in this tournament.

Jacob is not that small. We both won the worlds last year but he did it at feather and I did it at rooster. I have a lot of respect for him.

I like the idea of these invite only tournaments a lot, but can we please get someone to name them properly?

BJJ Kumite?

Jiu Jitsu Battle?

WTF is this unimaginative faggotry?
