World Expo 2012

Despite the fiasco of the cancelled Superfight between Nick Diaz and Braulio Estima due to a no show by Diaz, the World Expo 2012 was, by most accounts a success. Visitors, competitors and vendors alike were all stoked with the event and are looking forward to next year. The tournament held by the IBJJF was super slick as all IBJJF tournaments are, the Superfights were exciting and there was a large public turnout and many of the BJJ stars were present either supporting the event or competing in it.

Big congratulations to the promoters and to the sport for having an event as such!
