    Kaynan Duarte was the heavy favorite going into his matchup against ADCC 2019’s 88 kg champion, Matheus Diniz. It’s no real surprise; Duarte weighed in at 101 kg, giving him a substantial weight advantage over Diniz, who got on the scale at 93 kg. Moreover, Duarte was riding an 11-match win streak going into the main event at Road to ADCC, while Diniz had been on a three-match slide.

    Over the last twelve months, those in the training room with the Danaher Death Squad have said that Nicky Ryan is one of the toughest athletes in the room, perhaps second only to his brother, Gordon. Squad members — and Nicky Ryan himself — have talked about the evolution of the 20-year old’s game, and the development of his guard passing and wrestling. He displayed some of these skills this year in WNO matches against guys like PJ Barch and Gabriel Almeida, but each of those victories fell short of the hype we’d been sold from Puerto Rico.

    The first event of it's kind, FloGrappling's Road To ADCC is underway. ADCC champions, veterans and hopeful invitees will square off in six matches under the ADCC-finals ruleset. In the main event, the 2019 ADCC 88 kg champion, Matheus Diniz, will fight up in weight to take on the 2019 99+ kg champion, Kaynan Duarte. Duarte weighted in at 101.2 kg, which could be a significant advantage against Diniz, who weighted in at 93.4 kg. But Diniz is a master strategist in the ADCC ruleset, and has an opportunity to prove that again here.
