The professional grappling scene is blowing up right now. The Eddie Bravo Invitational, Metamoris, and Chael Sonnen's Submission Underground are already putting on fantastic displays of jiu-jitsu, judo, and wrestling; and now ONE Championship is joining the fray.

The Asian mixed martial arts promotion has announced the ONE Grappling Challenge Macao, to be held on Saturday, August 13. It will be held ahead of their PPV MMA event later that night.

Competitors in the grappling matches include ONE Lightweight Champion Shinya Aoki, ONE Women’s Atomweight Champion Angela Lee, and eight-time Brazilian jiu-jitsu champion Michelle Nicolini. The bouts will be conducted under IBJJF rules.

The tournament is open to the public, and anyone can register to compete. You can sign up, and read the full rules for the event, here.
