KASAI Pro 2 adds another powerful name to its feature eight-man round-robin tournament with the signing of Dante Leon.
The GF Team representative, who was the IBJJF No-Gi Pans and IBJJF American Nationals No-Gi champion, owner of the black belt, will compete in the organization’s World Middleweight Championship tournament at KASAI Pro 2 in Brooklyn, New York, on April 14.
“I’m very excited to be a part of KASAI Pro 2,” Leon said. “I’m sure that this rule set, along with the talented athletes already confirmed for the card, will create exciting matches for all fans watching.”
“For someone as young as Dante (22 y.o.) to boast such a long list of accolades leaves no doubt that we’ve signed one of jiu-jitsu’s greatest North American competitors,” said Rolles Gracie, KASAI President. “We can’t wait to see how this young lion fares against the other elite names chasing KASAI’s World Middleweight Championship.”
Leon joins a stacked lineup of pedigree talent competing for gold at 185lb that now includes DJ Jackson, Richie Martinez, Matheus Diniz, and Craig Jones.
