AUSTIN, Texas — January 8, 2020 — Today, FloSports, the innovator in live digital sports and original content, announced a multi-year extension of the partnership with KASAI Grappling to provide live and on-demand coverage of all KASAI Pro events.

FloSports has partnered with KASAI since 2017 and will expand its coverage even further in 2020 and beyond.

"We have worked with the FloGrappling team for the past two years. We are thrilled to renew our partnership. FloGrappling is the number one media player in the sport of Jiu-Jitsu. Together we will be able to do tremendous things. You can expect big things from KASAI!" - Rich Byrne, CEO KASAI

This extension builds on a successful partnership founded in 2017 when KASAI launched its Pro series with the 155lb tournament.  Since then, FloGrappling has gone on to cover a total of eight KASAI events, creating a legacy of classic matches and compelling storylines such as the birth of the Renato Canuto Era.

This story is far from finished though, and KASAI is set to continue pushing the envelope of professional jiu-jitsu with KASAI Pro 7: The Heavyweights. The tournament features some of the biggest names in jiu-jitsu like Roberto 'Cyborg’ Abreu, Vinny Magalhaes, Nicky Rodriguez, Patrick Gaudio - plus a historic rematch between Renato Canuto And Dante Leon.
