Victor Hugo Accepts Nicholas Meregali’s $20,000 Superfight Challenge

Nicholas Meregali recently took it to social media to challenge the 2023 IBJJF World Championship absolute division winner to a $20,000 match…
And Victor Hugo has now accepted the challenge!

Hugo won both his (super heavyweight) and the absolute division at the Worlds.
Following his success, he was asked about competing against Meregali and taking on his challenge.

He was happy to accept it:

He was talking, you know?
I didn’t interview two weeks ago. He can talk now, he can talk because we won. I’m here, let’s make it happen. I think it’s the perfect time.

I’ve proved, you know, I think it’s a match that’s gonna elevate the level of Jiu-Jitsu.
I was able to display great Jiu-Jitsu here, he displayed great Jiu-Jitsu on the last edition (of WNO).

I think that’s like, we gotta push those big matches. I think that’s gonna elevate the sport to the next level.
I’m here, let’s make it happen.

Meregali was satisfied to hear that Hugo had accepted his challenge:

Very happy to have my challenge accepted by Victor Hugo right after his incredible performance this past weekend.
We don’t have a date for the fight, but I’m already trying to find a way to do it as soon as possible.

It will be great to beat the current Champion and reaffirm once again to everyone that my level of Gi Jiu Jitsu is way ahead of the second best in the world.
