The first day of the 2013 ADCC is a wrap.
The icing on the cake, as usual, was the super fight between Braulio Estima and Andre Galvao. And the old rivals did not disappoint.
If Braulio exuded in his aggressive guard play, closed and open, seeking locks and sweeps, Andrew wanted his revenge to the 2009 defeat.
Galvão defended well Braulio’s leg locks and went foa guard pass. Braulio was forced to give his back and Galvão put the hooks and sank the rear naked choke to win.
