BJJ match of the day is a match from the Houston Open this year featuring Keenan Cornelius vs Mitch Norton. Keenan was the star of the Pan Ams yesterday winning his division and the purplebelt Absolute just months after winning the same 2 title at the European Championships. This kid will be one of best blackbelts in the world in a couple of years.
