Leandro Lo will be entering world of the heavyweights this upcoming February 1st.
The same day Faber rematches Renan Barao for the bantamweight belt, and Jose Aldo faces Ricardo Lamas for the featherweight belt.
The same day (in far less grand news), I debut at purple belt at US Grappling's Submission Only in Greensboro.
The green group has among others: Luiz Panza, newly minted black belt Travis Stevens, and Leo Noguiera.
The yellow group has Rodolfo Vieira, Alexandre Souza, MMA fighter Alan Belcher, Leandro Lo, and the Saudi King's adopted son Faisal.
Travis Stevens will be missing the Paris Grand Prix to compete in the Copa Podio. Out of the Grand Prix's in Judo, the Paris one is always one of the toughest and highest profile with impeccable Judo on display.
