Eddie Bravo has confirmed via his Instagram that Sunday, March 13, 2022, Is the date that EBI 19 will be returning.
With a Welterweight 16 man tournament
The Eddie Bravo Invitational has been on hiatus for the past four years, with Eddie Bravo focusing on putting on combat jiu-jitsu tournaments.
The famed grappling tournament jump-started the careers of Gordon Ryan, Craig Jones, Geo Martinez and Garry Tonon.
Bravo has also announced a further 3 participants in the 16 man tournament.
Oliver Taza, Nick Ronan and Dante Leon.
So we are likely to see rematches.
Besides Nathan Orchard, everyone in the tournament has either faced each other before or were training partners.
In the case of Taza and Nicky Ryan.
The two trained for years under John Danaher until the DDS split last year.
We also know that 2 of the remaining 10 spots on EBI 19 are for the Mexico open qualifier on February 19th, and the USA open qualifier on February 27th.
The two qualifiers will be streamed on Eddie Bravo’s YouTube channel. Check reading Strictly Fighters for updates.
