Brazil will hold three separate tryouts for the World Pro championship, to be held in Abu Dhabi for the third time in a row. The first tryout will take place this Saturday in Natal, in the northeastern state of Rio Grande do Norte. Next up will be Rio de Janeiro, on January 22. And the final chance for the South Americans to secure a spot in the main event would be in April 2011, in the beautiful Southern Brazilian tourist town of Gramado, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.

However, the last Brazilian tryouts, organized by Fernando Paradeda, now have a new date: the 19th and 20th of March. Again the promoters of the event promise there will be differentiating factors. In 2010, for example, a first-rate VIP area received illustrious dignitaries of the fight world like Zé Mário Sperry and even the mayor of Gramado, who also backs the Jiu-Jitsu event.

In all eighteen tryouts will be held around the world, all backed by Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan.
