Ultimate Absolute 2 - NYC

March 01, 2012

 

So for the first post of  Jiu Jitsu Pictures Blog I decided that would be about the best competition  I’ve been in a long time :

 

 

World’s best grapplers.One mat. Sixteen men. One winner. U$ 10,000 cash prize.  That sounded so good to me so I headed to NYC to cover the event.  Sick line-up : Celso Vinicius, Ryan Hall, Justin Rader, Renan Borges, Samuel Braga, Bruno Malfacine, Wilson Reis among others.

The location couldn’t be better , right across from the Madison Square Garden and limited sitting. One might think that U$ 150,00 is expensive for a ticket BUT first row in a tournament with high level grapplers AND all you can eat food  ( fruit, cheese,charcuterie, dessert ) is a no brainer. You get to watch live , very close to those guys.  I had a hard time photographing and trying to pay attention at the same time and  in the end I’m glad I was there to witnessed an incredible display of skills. 

 

Thanks Rob Constance and crew  ! Awesome event !

 

I’ll definitely go back.
