BJJ Rankings Ahead Of WNO 23: Nicholas Meregali vs. Vagner Rocha

Here are where some of the athletes are ranked on the FloGrappling Jiu-Jitsu rankings ahead of the WNO 23 Card. WNo 23 is streaming at 8 p.m. EST.

May 10, 2024 by Joe Harrington

The WNO 23: Meregali vs. Rocha features the No. 1-ranked Gi grappler in the world and the No. 4-ranked No-Gi grappler, Nicholas Meregali, but the Brazilian star is not the only highly-ranked grappler in the latest FloGrappling Jiu-Jitsu rankings competing on May 10. 

WNO 23: Meregali vs. Rocha begins at 8 p.m. EST from Arlington, Texas at the College Park Center.

The WNO 23 Card doesn't feature any Gi matches, so Meregali's hold on the No. 1 pound-for-pound rankings likely won't be in jeopardy when he takes to the WNO mat. But facing a lauded veteran like Vagner Rocha in a No-Gi match on the card is no easy task. 

Rocha is currently the No.2-ranked No-Gi grappler in the 185 pound weight class. 

The WNO 23 card features several ranked BJJ athletes in No-Gi. Here's a breakdown.
