Marcinho will take on the 66kg field. Mike Calimbas

Few spots remain open for the ADCC’s big event set for September 23 and 24 in Finland, and now there are even fewer, with Márcio André having been confirmed as a participant this Saturday.

A no-gi world champion and gi runner-up, Márcio André will replace Leozinho Vieira in the 66kg division, given that Vieira will be busy in a superfight opposite Chael Sonnen.

In his first appearance in an ADCC-held event, as a purple-belt, Márcio took silver in the 2013 Rio Trials, behind João Miyao.

Marcinho will be adding to a division that already features the likes of Rubens Cobrinha, Paulo Miyao, Augusto Tanquinho, Bruno Frazatto and AJ Agazarm.

The other name added this Saturday, in the 77kg division, is Leonardo “Cascão” Saggioro, a BTT representative. Meanwhile Tami Musumeci has bowed out of the women’s 60kg division.
