2019 ADCC silver medalist Nick Rodriguez has stepped up to replace his teammate Gordon Ryan at the BJJ Fanatics Submission Only Grand Prix. While everyone was no doubt excited to see Gordon compete at the event before he pulled out, the No. 2-ranked 99+ competitor in the world is about as good of a replacement as you can get.
Nick is excited for the opportunity to keep his momentum going when he competes at The BJJ Fanatics Grand Prix.
"I'm gonna be there playing my top game. Takedown, get on top, stay on top, pass the guard, take the back, then put people out. As many rear naked chokes as it takes to get to the final."
Nick will have to compete with Lucas "Hulk" Barbosa, Tex Johnson, Dante Leon, and others to win the $10,000 prize in Massachusetts.
