Today’s “Match of the Week” features two top competitors from the top two schools in BJJ, Braulio Estima (Gracie Barra) vs. Tarsis Humphreys (Alliance). This match took place in the absolute finals of the 2009 World Pro inaugural event.
That tournament was a momentous event, because it was the first high profile gi tournament in which the competitors were compensated for their efforts. In addition to rewarded a substantial amount of money to the winners, the organization also paid the travel expenses for all competitors.
