Dante Leon Is Making Headlines!

Canadian grappling superstar Dante Leon is making waves in the jiu jitsu community over the course of the past month.

Dante Leon is a very well recognized grappler that has been in the news as of late due to his passive aggressive Instagram posts directed to Jits Magazine, followed by his impressive win over black belt world champion Jeferson Guaresi in a very exciting no-gi jiu jitsu title fight, and now his up-coming match announcement against another tough opponent.


Coming off his controversial loss to Roberto Abreu “Cyborg” at Grappling Industries, Dante looked to bounce back at Faith and Violence III against Jeferson Guaresi.


Dante proved why he is a world class competitor taking Jeferson to the mat with his superior wrestling skills. Jeferson tried to enter into a potential leg locks exchange shortly after hitting the mat but Dante was able to roll through and take the back. Dante then locked in the rear make choke and got the tap to win the match.

After the match Dante was clear that he was going to be staying active announcing on his Instagram that he had two match announcements lined up.


The first match announcement came shortly after his initial story as Dante announced he would be facing Vinícius Lino, a multiple time IBJJF champion. That match is scheduled for May 6th in Los Angeles.

Time will tell how Dante does in that match. It certainly is good to see Dante Leon consistently being talked about in the jiu jitsu community though as it’s important for Canadian grapplers to have someone they look up too.
