World Jiu-Jitsu Expo Superfight Trailers!: Robson, Grippo, Schembri, Shaolin, Tanquinho et al

So, the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo has stepped up its game quite a bit.
Below are the trailers for some of the superfights.
It's a nice move and is pretty badass as well.
The only trailer I did not include is that of Tim Spriggs vs Leo Nogeuiera as Spriggs currently represents Team Lloyd Irvin who much like Voldemort, shall remain virtually nameless on this blog as much as possible.
Moving on, there are some great matches of up and comers versus  veterans and even an old school rematch for Robson Moura.

Gianni Grippo has an upcoming Copa Podio match that is submission only with Joao Miyao. They have marketed it as Miyao's first submission only match but I saw him compete no time limits with Garry Tonnon at Jiu-Jitsu Want vs Need if I'm not mistaken.
At any rate, Grippo faces recently mma-exported black belt world champion Tanquinho (who defeated Rafa and Cobrinha on the same day, arguably the two most dominant featherweights in all of modern Jiu-Jitsu.
This is an absurdly stern test for Grippo and I see Tanquinho's physicality being a real tough test for Grippo.
