Pan American 2012 Live Broadcast from March 29 to April 1st
Wow, it doesn’t seem right but it is, the 2012 edition of the Pan American Jiu Jitsu Championship is at our doorstep once again and a year has passed since Rodolfo Vieira made his first big statement of 2011, winning both his weight and the open weight divisions. Even though this year the great champ will not be defending his two titles, giving preference to the World Pro Cup event happening in early April, the tournament might very well be used to launch two of his GFT team mates to the spotlight in an extremely tough lightweight division, the team mates aforementioned are Vinicius Marinho and Italo Lins who have been causing an uproar in Brazil with their offensive and eye pleasing grappling game. This lightweight division is truly stacked this year as is the featherweight division (see some of the confirmed fighters below) making this tournament definitely one of the most anticipated jiu jitsu events of the year. In anticipation, many teams such as Gracie Barra, Checkmat, Atos and Alliance have been preparing heavily for the clash next weekend.

The event will be held at the Event Centre at the University California Irvine from the 29th of March, ending on April 1st and luckily we will be able to see it all, live through the excellent broadcast (more details click on this link).
