Alexandre Ribeiro has owned the ADCC under-99kg division since 2007.
The two-time champ hasn’t competed all that much in the last couple of years; but who can doubt his ability to notch his third divisional title?
To do so, though, the two-time absolute world champion of Jiu-Jitsu will have to slay a lion per match to retain control over “his house” at the ADCC.
In Nottingham, Xande will face off with submission aces of the caliber of Rodolfo Vieira, Lagarto, João Assis, Braga Neto and others.
And there could have been even more, had Roger Gracie and Robert Drysdale not pulled out.
Head to the GRACIEMAG at the ADCC Blog now to check out an X-ray of yet another division at the World Cup of submission wrestling.
