Superstar Leandro Lo has made headlines for his steady rise through the weight divisions, but the former lightweight World champion broke new ground by signing up for the Abu Dhabi World Pro in the maximum possible weight category! 

The UAEJJF removed the absolute division after the 2016 World Pro. Lo -- who was double gold (heavyweight and absolute) champion at IBJJF Euros in January and at Pans in March -- is known for his desire to compete against bigger opponents in his search for tough challenges. 

Lo has changed the weight category he will compete in from 94kg to -110kg. 

Also in the -110kg division are athlete such as Jose Junior, Erberth Santos, Andre Campos, Gustavo Elias and more. 

Lo will compete on Thursday April 20 in the World Pro Country Qualifier for a chance to represent  Brazil in the main bracket of the World Pro, which begins on Friday 21. 

Currently, #1 ranked athlete Jose Junior is qualified for the -110kg division. One more position is available to the athlete who wins the World Pro Country Qualifier.
