There is a stacked lineup of competitors for the 2016 ADCC North American Trials, which go down this Saturday, Nov. 19, in Bayville, New Jersey. FloGrappling will be live-streaming the whole tournament, so take a look at the divisions below to get acquainted with who's competing. 


Notable Names

The "Danaher Death Squad" is out in force with main members Eddie Cummings, Garry Tonon and Gordon Ryan all in attendance. Upcoming reps of the team include brown belt Oliver Taza and even Gordon's 15-year-old brother, Nicky, who may not even be eligible to compete even if he were to somehow win. 

Mansher Khera of Marcelo Garcia's team is also in the mix. He's competed against both Tonon and Cummings under modified ADCC rules, going the distance in both matches and losing via points to Tonon and decision to Cummings. 

A few other names which jump out include ADCC bronze medalist Justin Rader in the 65.9kg division, 10th Planet's Nathan Orchard, and former UFC fighter Jacob Volkman in the -76.9kg category. 

ADCC veteran Tom DeBlass, who is the event organizer and a well-known figure in the jiu-jitsu community, will enter the +99kg division. Joining him will be Jimmy Friedrich of Atos and Dallas Niles of Lovato, two tough heavyweight brown belts.
