World Jiu-Jitsu Expo Today, Features Diaz-Estima Superfight

Nick Diaz UFC 137 weigh-inThe very first World Jiu-Jitsu Expo will take place later today at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California.

The event will feature six grappling superfights between some of the very best male and female submission grapplers on the planet. Sitting atop the lineup of BJJ superfights is a no-gi match between submission wizard Braulio Estima and MMA renegade Nick Diaz.

Currently retired from mixed martial arts and battling it out with the Nevada State Athletic Commission over his marijuana suspension, the competition against Estima should provide the elder of the fighting Diaz brothers with a nice distraction as well as an outlet for his competitive drive.

Diaz is pegged as the underdog by a wide margin to Estima, who is considered by many to be the world’s best submission grappler.

You can view the entire card for $9.95 on beginning at 6:30PM PT with a pre-show; the grappling matches will kick off at 7:00Pm PT. Check out the lineup below:

  • Nick Diaz vs. Braulio Estima (No-Gi)
  • Kron Gracie vs. Rafael Lovato (Gi)
  • Victor Estima vs. Kron Gracie (Gi)
  • Nino Schembri vs. Bill Cooper (Gi)
  • Kyra Gracie vs. Alexis Davis (No-Gi)
  • Caio Terra vs. Jeff Glover (No-Gi)
