Gordon Ryan is set to take on Yuri Simoes at KASAI Pro, which will go down December 9.
“In Gordon and Yuri we have two beasts at the top of their respective food chains who will compete for alpha status under the bright lights of New York City,” said KASAI President Rolles Gracie. “KASAI’s first professional event sends a bold statement about our plans to showcase the world’s finest talent while elevating the sport of Jiu-Jitsu as a whole. We’re very excited.”
Yuri Simoes is a multiple-time IBJJF Champion and Ricardo Vieira black belt. He holds wins over such big-name grapplers as Keenan Cornelius, Romulo Barral, and Ryan’s teammate, Garry Tonon.
Gordon Ryan is a man who needs no introduction. An ADCC Champion and multiple-weight-class EBI Champion, Ryan is a veteran member of the Danaher Death Squad, one of the most dangerous teams in professional grappling. Ryan beat Yuri Simoes at EBI 6 via submission.
KASAI Pro will be going down at the Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse in Brooklyn, New York, from 6pm to 11pm EST. If you can’t make it to Brooklyn, you can watch all of the action live on Flograppling.
