As ADCC Finland approaches the list of competitors is getting finalized. ADCC 2017 will see the return of many aces to the big scene but in addition to them there will be many young aces.
Perhaps the most surprising is the inclusion of Jeff Monson who has competed at ADCC for a number of years. He is currently 46.
IBJJF champ Leandro Lo is also among those confirmed. It will be trully interesting to see how he does at ADCC given that he hasn’t competed there previously.
Even though Dillon Danis has been talking about preparing for ADCC his name was previously absent for the lists but is now there.
Pablo Popovitch will be returning to the competitive scene after quite a while.
And of course Leo Vieira will be making a case for the under 66kg division. Leo Vieira returned to competition with ACB Jiu Jitsu grand prix earlier this summer.
Notably absent is Matheus Diniz.
