The brackets and schedule have dropped for the 2019 IBJJF No-GI Pans!
Keenan Cornelius is among the black belts who can expect a tough first-round match as he goes up against Devhonte Johnson of Unity. The IBJJF World No-Gi champion will compete in the super-heavyweight division.
Cornelius has been training locally at the Renzo Gracie Academy with John Danaher and will be using this tournament as a tune-up ahead of ADCC just two weeks from now. The pioneer of lapel-based trickery will have to get through Johnson in the semifinal and should he win he will likely face Vinicius Ferreira of Alliance in the final.
We're streaming the entire IBJJF Pan No-Gi on Saturday and Sunday, September 14-15. Watch every match and every mat live on FloGrappling.
