Gordon frickin' Ryan! The ADCC champ puts 47 points on the board before landing the armbar submission vs. Evangelos Moumtzis. The win moves him into the quarterfinals where he'll face defending IBJJF champ, Mahamed Aly. 



UPDATE: Mahamed Aly hurt his ribs in his opening-round match vs. John Hansen and will not be able to compete further into the tournament. The scratch gives Gordon Ryan the victory by default, which will move him into the semifinals vs. the winner of the Yuri Simoes vs. Jared Dopp match.
