Rani Yahya, the ADCC winner at -66kg in 2007, is a noted no-gi specialist and an MMA fighter with a 24-9-0 (1 NC) record. He also took a silver medal at the 2005 ADCC World Championships.
Facing Thiago Abreu of Checkmat in final of the lightweight division, Yahya shot in from distance and looked to pick up a single, but Abreu snatched a guillotine choke that led to the ref having to stop the match only seconds later.
