Mica Galvao’s Father Explains Why He Won’t Compete At CJI: “He’s Going To Make Much More Than $1 Million”

Mica Galvao’s Father Explains Why He Won’t Compete At CJI: “He’s Going To Make Much More Than $1 Million”

Mica Galvao has received an official invite to compete at the CJI (Craig Jones Invitational) event from Craig Jones himself…
However, his father – Melqui Galvao – has revealed that Mica will not compete for the $1 million prize.

Why?
Well, it appears that the focus this year is on winning the ADCC title instead.

Galvao explained why in a recent interview:

We received the invitation for Mica [from Craig Jones].

As I was talking there, I think his idea is fantastic.
Give a million dollars for -80kg category and give a million dollars for the over 80 category.

It will make the competition better, it will make the sport grow.

However, the timing is a big issue, as it’s coinciding with the same date as the ADCC is taking place:

I just don’t agree that it should be the same date as the ADCC.
I think if he [Jones] booked it a week later, it would be perfect.

And as far as the prize money is concerned, Melqui believes his son will earn much more than $1 million over the years of his career.
In other words, they’re more focused on long-term objectives:

Speaking of Mica, we’re after this year of legacy.

Mica is 20 years old, we really believe that he will compete at least until he 35…
So, he has a career of at least 15 years.

We believe he is going to make a lot more than a million dollars over those 15 years.

So, this year Mica is going to ADCC.
