Ralek Gracie -- Metamoris is a name we made up. Metamoris is the unity (clash) of styles (ideas) for the sake of art and competition, to honor those who refine their craft and bring it to the field for testing.
Metamoris Pro is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gi competition October 14 in San Diego California. Among the notable names competing in the seven super fights are Andre Galvao, Roger Gracie, Buchecha, Kron Gracie, Jeff Glover, Caio Terra, Rafael Lovato, Kevin Casey and Dean Lister.
There is almost 100K in prize money. This is a professional event, this is not a tournament but seven prearranged super fights. These super stars are going to be paid to do what they love and what they have dedicated their lives to: Jiu-Jitsu. Competitors are paid according to their star power. There is a preset purse to show and another to win.
When it comes to super fights, there can be issues with the gray area around making weight. For example, back in May 2012 at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo, with the headline super fight Braulio Estima vs. Nick Diaz we still do not know what happened.
Ralek -- If one of the fighters does not make the preset agreed upon weight they forfeit 20% of their show money. That money is added to the other player’s purse. Now the other player gets to choose if he still wants to take the fight or not.

It was just two weeks ago that Caio Terra once again added another pan am title to his already impressive resume. After his amazing performance, during an interview with Budovideos.com, Caio made a strong statement that sent shockwaves throughout the jiu-jitsu universe concerning the use of steroids. In this interview we sit down with the man behind this controversy as he discuses how the use of steroids ruin our sport.
Steroids have been an issue that has never been touched on in our sport, what was your reason for touching on the issue at the pan ams? Caio: I wanted to win and still talk about it. Cause if I have lost and said something they would call me a bad loser. The thing is that this has been going on for years and the only few people who doesn’t do it are scared of touching this subject.
