2nd Edition of Combat Jiu-Jitsu Tournament Set To Feature Females at EBI12

 

 

Back in March the first ever Combat Jiu-Jitsu mini tournament was held as a part of the Eddie Bravo Invitational.

But looks like the event has managed to captivate enough attention to make it a regular thing.

12th edition of the event will be a pioneer in another manner – it will feature an all female 16 women tournament. Previously Bravo wanted to organize an all female edition for EBI 9 but ended up instead making it another male only tournament.

At UFC’s request Eddie Bravo made it an all female tournament. He confirmed it on a JRE

But what wasn’t known at the time is that EBI 12 will feature a mini tournament of Combat Jiu-Jitsu starring female competitors looking to try their skill at slap-jitsu!

The 4 woman Combat Jiu-Jitsu tournament is currently set to feature:
