KASAI Super Series Returns in July With Canuto vs Leon, Khera vs Cocco

KASAI has made two matches official for the Super Series show in Orlando FL which takes place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Hotel on July 4.

Two-time KASAI Pro champ Renato Canuto will meet Dante Leon in the main event. With tournament wins at 155lb and 170lb, Renato Canuto is also a veteran of three KASAI superfights with wins over Vagner Rocha and Marcio Andre. 

Dante Leon fought his way into the main event with submission wins over Edwin Najmi and Matheus Lutes on past KASAI events. The GF Team bulldog will get to test his submission-oriented game against the high-flying Brazilian in a no-gi encounter under the bright lights of the KASAI stage. 

The co-main event will feature Mansher Khera vs. Enrico Cocco in a superfight that pits two ADCC veterans against each other. Cocco, who hails from Miami, will take on New Yorker Khera in front of the Florida crowd. 

Both matches will be 10 minutes under KASAI Rules with Golden Score Overtime.

KASAI Super Series Orlando follows the event’s debut back in Dallas this past February. KASAI Super Series showcases the most decorated names in Submission Grappling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in compelling feature matches.

KASAI Super Series Orlando is taking place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Hotel in conjunction with the 2019 US Open ISKA World Martial Arts Championships.

“This will be KASAI’s first time in Florida, and what better place to have our event than at Disney during this great martial arts weekend?” said KASAI President Rolles Gracie. “We have a great card prepared and can’t wait to present it to the fans on the Fourth of July.”
