ADCC has lined up another excellent Superfight! In the latest to be added to the roster bjj veteran Braulio Estima will be facing the guy to beat in today’s competitions – Leandro Lo!
Head organizer Mo Jassim is quite content with the get, this is after all the 4th superfight to be added to the event.
Braulio Estima has countless accolades but perhaps the most relevant for the occasion is that he’s won the 2009 ADCC Absolute division!
The occasion will be a first for Leandro Lo under the adcc rule set. As a 4x world champion he’s more than eager to compete as much as possible in 2017!
Estima told flograppling:
“The ADCC is like our Olympic games. Leandro Lo, in my opinion, is the best competitor out there, and I am a big fan of his. We both have a very open game and the match should be an amazing show. I am very excited.
This invitation came at a great time. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to perform at the ADCC worlds, in my weight class and the absolute. Maybe it will be my goodbye from the mats, but in the most prestigious no-gi tournament in the world.
It has been a while since I competed without the gi, but this will be a great moment to motivate me, and even more so, it will help me get in my best shape ever for the main event in Finland.
I believe the trials will be very exciting. It will have the feel of the real ADCC, especially with the addition of these huge super fights. I’m sure this will motivate all the Americans to be there and represent their country fighting among the best grapplers of the planet.”
The event will also feature:
• Rafael Lovato Jr. vs Marcus ‘Buchecha’ Almeida
• Roberto ‘Cyborg’ Abreu vs Vinny Magalhaes
• Bruno Frazatto vs Geo Martinez
The ADCC West Coast Trials is the second and final chance for residents of North America to receive invites for the 2017 ADCC World Championships in Finland in September. Trials will be happening April 15th 2017 in Anaheim Convention Center!
