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:
Bellator’s Ilima-Lei Macfarlane
Norway MMA Fighter Celine Haga (seen below in the company of UFC’s Holly Holm & Claudia Gadelha)
Amy “Resurrection” Montenegro – an Invicta FC fighter with current record 8-2.
ALL-FEMALE EBI show happens Sunday July 30, featuring a 16 woman EBI 125 pound tournament – and it will be featuring:
- Pati Fontes
- Kristina Barlaan
- Lila Smadja
- Talita Alencar
- Jenna Bishop
- Fiona Margaret Watson
- Tássia Pimenta
- Erin Herle
- Tammi Musameci
