Cohen has extensive experience and solid competition accolades, including first-place finishes at 2016 No-Gi Pans and 2017 American Nationals.

He had this to say about his upcoming match with the legendary Terra:

"I’m going into this fight ready and confident. I really feel like anyone is beatable under the right circumstances. I know I’m the clear underdog here and that only motivates me more. It is an honor to have the opportunity to compete against a legend in jiu-jitsu, but I’m going into this match like every other one. No expectations, just go out there and do the best I can and put on a show."

Marcelo Cohen Highlight

As Cohen stated above, there is no doubt that Terra is the favorite: It’s a no-gi match, and Terra is a nine-time no-gi world champion. But Terra himself remains cautious, knowing that a single mistake is all that is necessary for someone like Cohen to score the upset: 

For those that don't know, Marcelo is a guy who has been working hard for some time and picking up great wins. Every year his jiu-jitsu gets better and better as he tests himself against the best in the world. 

I'm excited for this match, and for anyone that loves jiu-jitsu, this should be a great one to watch!

Rest assured, we're excited.
