A tournament open to athletes of all belt levels and nationalities lands in London on March 9-10 when the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam series concludes its 2019 season. 

The ADGS London has a total prize fund of $120,000 with cash prizes ranging from $500 for a blue belt gold medalist to $2,500 for black belt champions. 

Taking place at the Cooper Box Arena in London– a multi-sport arena constructed for the 2012 Olympic Games– the event also offers important ranking points for competitors wishing to enter the end of season Abu Dhabi World Pro in April. 

The closing date for registration is March 5, and the division are filling up fast. We already have a good idea of who’s signed up, with many top UK and European based black belts alongside some of the best talent from powerhouse countries such as Brazil and the U.S. 

Also going down in the same arena that weekend is a lightweight edition of the prestigious and lucrative Abu Dhabi King of Mats event, an invitational tournament open to -69kg athletes who have won either the Abu Dhabi World Pro or Abu Dhabi Grand Slam events. Look for Gianni Grippo, Paulo Miyao and more as they take to the mats on March 10. 

Remember that we’ll be streaming the entire Abu Dhabi Grand Slam event as well as the Abu Dhabi King of Mats on March 9-10, with every mat and every match LIVE or On Demand on FloGrappling.
