The team of Professor Lloyd Irvin is getting ready to invade Tokyo with around thirty athletes. The Japanese capital is set to host the Asian Jiu-Jitsu Championship on the coming 11th and 12th of September.
Heading the team are last year’s absolute champion Mike Fowler, black belt revelation “JT” Torres and Professor Stephen Roberto. Besides the beasts from team Lloyd Irvin, another of the black belts to compete is Abmar Barbosa (Drysdale), who recently had stellar performances against Kron and Kayron Gracie at the Jiu-Jitsu Pan-American in California.
Super heavyweight champion of Brazil Igor Silva (GF Team) is also signed up and is one of the favorites at black belt.
With some action-packed matches expected, who do you think takes the absolute?
