Bruno Alves Featured in FloGrappling's Preview of the IBJJF World Masters
The 2017 IBJJF World Master Jiu-Jitsu Master 1 Black Belt Division kicks off in around 48 hours time where Bruno will be competing in Las Vegas, looking to win another title at this event. He won the 2016 World Master championship and has prepared very well for this year's event.
Speaking with Bruno over the course of his preparation he said that this year will be a very tough competition as there are a lot of quality athlete's who are competing.
FloGrappling wrote a good preview of the event:
"Two-time World Masters champ Bruno Alves of ZR Team would normally be the no-question favorite to bring home another title, but Rafael "Formiga" Barbosa of Soul Fighters will make that task much more difficult for Alves. Formiga is moving up from lightweight where he finished second in 2016 and first in 2015. The rise in weight should not be a problem for Formiga, who took home silver and bronze medals the last two years in the Open division. He won the 2017 Pan open division and closed out the middleweight bracket with Soul Fighters teammate Marcus Antelante, who will also compete in Vegas.
Alves teammate on ZR Team Elfrankli Sousa was the 2017 Brazilian national champion. Both 2016 bronze medalists will be returning in Clark Gracie and Oliver Geddes, who also finished with a bronze medal at the 2017 Europeans."
