The World Jiu-Jitsu Expo taking place in Long Beach, Calif onMay 12 has added several more grappling super fights including one with a top Strikeforce women’s challenger.

Alexis Davis, who last competed in March in a fight against Sarah Kaufman, will get back to her grappling roots as she takes on Kyra Gracie in a no-gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu match up at the expo.

Gracie is one of the most talented women in the world of grappling, and has been teasing a move to MMA for some time. While the grappling super fight won’t be MMA, it will introduce Gracie to one of the top fighters in the sport when she faces Alexis Davis.

Also added to the grappling super fights will be a match-up between Kron Gracie and Victor Estima as well as Kayron Gracie facing Rafael Lovato Jr.

Kron Gracie has actually been in Stockton, Calif. working alongside Nick Diaz as he gets ready for his own super fight against Braulio Estima on the same card.
