ADCC Worlds // May 5-6 2007

Recommended Posts


BOCEK~! and some lil dude who has no shot.


It only comes once every two years, which along with liking many sweaty guys grasping each other firmly, is 2 things it has in common with Lei Tong. That's right, it's the ADCC WORLDS! Which I am, for the first time, giving a shit about. And so should YOU! (Not you, Lei Tong. I'm sure you will hold your grappling knowledge cred over us all throughout this whole damned process..) Look at all the NAMES!! Gabriel Gonzaga! Jeff Monson! Joe DADDY Stevenson! Renzo Gracie! Kurt Pellegrino! Drew Fickett! Pe De Pano! Igor Vovchancyn! Igor Vovchancyn?!! And some other people. Igor Vovchancyn? REALLY? Do Arabs have his family held hostage or something and threaten them with death unless Igor participates? Oh? You mean they do? Oh. Well, shit...

Also, if my girl Stacy finds some way to beat that ugly fucking mongoloid Borges, I' m pretty certain my brain would explode from the incomprehensible joy I would feel.

Yep. I actually posted the few pics I took there a while back (in which it's been noted that I looked WAY more stoked to be taking a picture with Baret than Stacy).

I'm guessing here, but I think the openweight bracket is made up largely of volunteers on the weekend of the tournment, depending on who's feeling up to it and/or really wants the chance at some cash.

Canadian Mark Bocek was submitted via footlock by Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Andre Galvao in the second bracket of the Under 76.9 kg (Under 170 lbs) division at the Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling World Championships this afternoon.


In the same division, crowd favorite Marcelo Garcia submitted two-time UFC veteran Kurt Pellegrino via rear-naked choke to cruise onto tomorrow's brackets. After defeating Renzo Gracie earlier in the day, underdog of the year Mike Fowler submitted world champion Saulo Ribeiro by toe hold to make ther cut as well. Fowler had entered the competition on two days' notice.


In the Over 99 kg (Over 219 lbs) division, Fabricio Werdum outscored Karol Bedorf to advance as well, while Rolls Gracie defeated Mario Rinaldo on points.

Garcia vs. Fowler. The vast majority of the near-10 minute fight involves Marcelo fudging around in Fowlers half-guard (which he managed to get a lot), but once Garcia gets to side he sets up his submission nicely. To me, it looked like he baited mounting Fowler, which allowed Fowler to not think much of Garcia controlling his head, and from there Garcia slowly sunk his hand under Fowlers chin, connected his hands, and mounted for added pressure for the tap.
