Grappling Industries and EBI Join Forces
Think you have what it takes win an EBI event? Well you just may get your chance. Grappling Industries and Eddie Bravo will now be collaborating to help find local BJJ talent and give them an opportunity to make it to the big show. This year Grappling Industries have hosted a number of submission-only super fights with big names including Keenan Cornelius, Gordon Ryan and Eddie Cummings to compliment their round robin tournament events. With EBI and its submission-only with overtime format quickly gaining popularity it's not hard to see how the two events would compliment each other. Grappling Industries will be offering the chance to qualify for an EBI event and win a trip to California to compete. Anyone can enter, the only requirement is to win a Grappling Industries event that features the EBI grand prize.
