Tuesday's Grappling News: Keenan Cornelius Confirmed for IBJJ Pro League! & Paulo Miyao vs Victor Silverio

The recent Stuart Cooper documentary focus (awesome documentary with some insight into his journey in Jiu-Jitsu and the mental side of elite level performance), Keenan Cornelius, has agreed/confirmed for the IBJJ Pro League's upcoming event in October.

He joins the other all-star list of Jiu-Jitsu notables including: "Otavio Sousa, Paulo Miyao, Claudio Calasans Jr, Yuri Simões, Felipe Pena, Bernardo Faria, Gustavo Pires, Jackson Sousa, Vitor Oliveira, Ivaniel Cavalcante, Luiz Panza and Ricardo Evangelista, Osvaldo Moizinho."
Last year he defeated Jackson Souza (a budding rivalry between those two that's continued since brown belt) and returns this year to defend his title.

Silverio defends Paulo's open guard for quite a bit here with insistent grips on the pants/knees-ish placement but Paulo grinds it out and gets the win against the heavier opponent.
