Incredible weekend of Jiu Jitsu ahead as another huge professional card is ready to start the clock. New York based no-gi promotion Kasai Pro will be putting forward their 3rd event, a welterweight (170 lbs) grand prix comprised of some of the most well known athletes in the sport. The card will also feature a gigantic superfight between Aussie heel hook machine Craig Jones, and the most feared grappler in combat sports, Rousimar Palhares also known as Toquinho.

The Kasai Pro 3 main event, the welterweight tournament, will see the promotion’s current lightweight champion, Renato Canuto face a variety of jiu jitsu players with very different styles, from the ‘Brute Jiu Jitsu’ of Vagner Rocha, to the most interesting prospect in the 10th Planet academy, former D1 wrestler, PJ Barch; ADCC veteran Mike Perez, Marcelo Garcia’s new prospect – brown belt Matheus Lutes, Japanese gi specialist Masahiro Iwasaki, Polish MMA fighter Marcin Held, as well as local talent Jason Rau, Matt Serra’s pupil.

The card does not end here as many more superfights will be on display for the fans. From this extensive card we would like to call your attention to 3 particular matches, Gilbert Burns vs AJ Agazarm, Eduardo Gonçalves vs Silvio Duran and Jon Calestine vs Gianni Grippo. Calestine x Grippo in particular is an excellent pairing for the rising pupil of Eddie Cummings and EBI champion, who is undefeated as a black belt. Jon will be facing the biggest test in his young career and his first world class opponent in Alliance’s Gianni.
