Alexandre 'Cafe' Dantas Set To Face Jeff Monson At ADCC Open

The first officially recognized ADCC event of 2018 is nearly here!

The ADCC USA Open goes down in Coral Springs, Florida, on Feb. 10. It's an open tournament that also features six incredible superfights.

For those interested in competing, there are four skill divisions: beginners, intermediate, advanced, and expert; anyone can register. Visit the event's official site for more information.


The Main Event: Dantas vs. Monson

Alexandre "Café" Dantas holds wins over athletes such as Marcelo Garcia, Fabricio Werdum, and Fernando "Terere" Augusto. One of jiu-jitsu’s earliest superstars, Dantas made the jump to MMA in order to pursue a more lucrative career. Recently, Café competed in a legends superfight at the UAEJJF 2017 Tokyo Grand Slam and showed everyone he’s still got skills on the mat after submitting Ricco Rodriguez.

Dantas will face "The Snowman" Jeff Monson. Perhaps one of the most recognizable faces in MMA and jiu-jitsu, Monson is an ADCC legend and a master of the rule set. He’ll be looking to improve upon his less-than-stellar performance at ADCC Worlds back in September after losing to Joao Assis in the opening round.

Keenan, Craig And Other Pros Predict Nicky vs Tye

Nicky Ryan vs Tye Ruotolo is a matchup of two of the most promising prospects in submission grappling today. Nicky has long been heralded as the next big thing out of the Danaher Death Squad, predicted to follow in the footsteps of his three-time ADCC champion brother Gordon. Tye burst on the scene as a late addition at ADCC 2017, when the then 16-year-old made it to the semifinals before finishing fourth.
