Flashback Friday: Gianni Grippo vs Luis Rubalvaca (2012)

This match took place in February 2012 at the IBJJF Houston Open.  I'm a big fan of Grippo and who doesn't love to see a Feather competing against a Heavyweight?!  At the time Gianni was still with Renzo Gracie but recently made the move to Marcelo Garcia (NYC).  Luis Rubalvaca received his black belt from Jacare Cavalcanti later that year in September.


Gianni Grippo recently won gold at the 2013 Worlds (Feather) and has an upcoming super fight with Darson Hemmings.
