Earlier, we announced Marcelo Garcia’s invitation to ADCC 2011.
We were left salivating over the possibility of seeing another under-77kg showdown between the Alliance ace and Pablo Popovitch, the current champion.
However, Popovitch announced over Twitter that he’ll be competing at the world cup of the grappling arts one weight class up, in the under-88kg one.
“We won’t be in the same weight class. I’m moving up to also win the absolute.”
So Garcia versus Popovitch at ADCC 2011?
Only in the absolute or if Marcelo moves up too, which is unlikely.
