Garry Tonon Drops to -66kg for ADCC 2022

Jun 28, 2022

Garry Tonon's inclusion in the -66 kg division raises an interesting question – who takes the number one seed? That honor normally goes to the returning champion, but 2019 gold medalist Augusto "Tanquinho" Mendes has retired from ADCC.

Kennedy Maciel, silver medalist that year, is a logical choice to take over the number one seed but 2-16 is a toss-up.

You've got returning medalists AJ Agazarm (silver in 2017), and then Tonon, who took bronze at 77kg in 2019.

Whereas most other divisions are fairly predictable in their seeding, -66kg is a mystery as to how the matches may play out, but judging by the assembled names there isn't likely to be a bad match.
