The most prestigious grappling event in the world, the ADCC World Championship, returns in 2019 with the very best submission grapplers on earth.
Lachlan Giles, The People's Champion of ADCC
Oct 4, 2019
Lachlan Giles forever became a legend with his brutal efficiency and amazing finishes in the 2019 ADCC absolute division. Giles is the lightest competitor to hit the absolute podium since 2007 when Marcelo Garcia and Andre Galvao (both 77kg) took silver and bronze respectively. A physiotherapist and Ph.D. (whose specialty was knee injuries), Giles proved technique can overcome size and strength when applied correctly; he submitted the +99kg champ Kaynan Duarte and physical specimens Patrick Gaudio and Mahamed Aly for one of the most memorable ADCC performances ever.
