The 2013 ADCC event in Beijing, China is still developing its roster as the existing athletes shift around. With a little over a month left to go, the October 19-20 championship is settling down fast.
In the -66kg division, black belt ADCC veteran Jeff Glover is out due to injury so the committee must work on another invitation to a lucky athlete. Glover’s exciting and entertaining style will be missed and we hope he recovers soon.
Black belt Samir Chantre from Caio Terra Association has expressed interest as well as brown belt Gianni Grippo from Marcelo Garcia JJ/Alliance. Both have been in contact with the organization and while the committee has a list of alternates on their mind, the suggestions of the public are always welcomed.
Who do you think should be in the -66kg division at the 2013 ADCC alongside names such as the current champion Rafael Mendes, Rubens Cobrinha, Justin Rader, Joao Miyao, Mark Ramos, Marcio Andre and more?
Let us know and persuade the ADCC committee of who deserves to be in Beijing next month!
