Leandro Lo and Lucas “Hulk” Barbosa sign on for IBJJF GP
The IBJJF GP 2019 is shaping up to be one of the best nogi tournaments in recent history.
Fan interest was piqued by the announcement of Gordon Ryan and Buchecha as the tournaments first competitors, but things have now got even more exciting.
Over the past few days, the IBJJF have broken the news that 4-time nogi World champion Lucas “Hulk” Barbosa and multiple time World, Pan Am and Copa Podio champion, Leandro Lo.
Leandro Lo is an interesting addition to the field and while he is more accomplished competing in the gi, it is important to note that he defeated Gordon Ryan 4×0 at the ADCC trials in 2017. Despite the addition of Hulk and Lo, all eyes will remain on Buchecha and Ryan, who could be on course to meet on the mats for the first time.
