Following the European Championship that took place in Portugal, it’s time for the European Jiu-Jitsu No-Gi IBJJF Championship, set to take place this weekend in Rome, Italy.

Many of the biggest names of the sport are registered for the event, which will be held parallel to the Rome Open. We set aside a few of those names to help you get hyped for the championship.

Mahamed Aly, whose no-gi skills were evident as he secured his spot in the ADCC by winning the São Paulo Trials, is a favorite among super-heavyweights.

Also with plenty of momentum is Isaque Bahiense. The Copa Pódio Lightweight GP champion is enrolled in the middleweight division. Heavyweight Polish phenom Adam Wardzinski will try to nab another gold medal this season, but only if he can outperform veteran Pablo Popovich, whose results in past ADCCs speak for themselves.

Stay on the lookout also for featherweight Hiago George, lightweights AJ Agazarm and Alex Cabanes, as well as ultra-heavyweights Gabriel “Fedor” Lucas and Otávio “Oreia” Serafim.
