The UAEJJF 2017 Rio Grand Slam is just one week out, and while many divisions are waiting for late registrations to fill the brackets out, the Men’s 94kg Black Belt division is already shaping up to be an exceptional affair.

The Top 2 UAEJJF Ranked Belts Are In The Same Division

Adam Wardzinski and Lucas Barbosa are ranked 1st and 2nd (respectively) in the UAEJJF. Though the brackets haven’t been drawn up yet, there is a decent chance these two will meet at some point during the event.

The two have already faced each other once this year: Barbosa came out on two advantage points at the LA Grand Slam in September.  We’re certain Wardzinski took home some lessons from that match and will be eager to stop Barbosa from biting any further into his lead on the top ranking position.

Xande Ribeiro Back In Action

Arguably one of the top 3 performances at ADCC cam from the veteran Xande Ribeiro, who had 3 savage submissions and looked exceptional in his matches with Gordon Ryan and Buchecha. We’re looking forward to him giving ‘free’ lessons in classic jiu-jitsu.

Patrick Gaudio Enters the Fray

Patrick Guadio has had a monster 2017 - 1st places at Pans (with a win over Barbosa in the final), 2nd at Worlds, the rising GF Team star shows no signs of slowing down. Guadio’s game could be characterized by his ungodly strength, but that would be doing a disservice to his technique, which he has in spades.

ADCC 2021: A Very Early Look At 77KG

JT Torres ADCC

Last week I started the process of a series of articles speculating what the ADCC 2021 divisions will end up looking like, you can read the 66KG article here. While 66kg looks like it will be thin in terms of athletes who clearly deserve an invite, there os an abundance of established talent at 77kg, leaving few spots open and making the trials even more important at this weight.

Grace Gundrum w/ Zach and JM

In her debut at black belt, 18-year-old Grace "The Silent Assassin" Gundrum made quick work of her opponent, Pati Fontes.
