It won’t be long now until the biggest stars in grappling go head to head in the biennial ADCC. This year’s big one will take place at Finland’s Espoo Arena in September, and many top-level athletes have confirmed they will be vying for glory and prize money.

Now we know that Leandro Lo will be there making life harder for everybody he comes across. An IBJJF world champion, the Brotherhood representative has never competed in one of these, due to contractual obligations. He joins the 88kg division with the previously confirmed Romulo Barral, Xande Ribeiro, Keenan Cornelius, Pablo Popovich, among others.

UPDATE: Leo Vieira and a few other fighters have since confirmed they will be competing as well.
