Winner of the Brazilian ADCC 2011 qualifiers Gabriel Vella has pulled out of the competition, according to information sent to by journalist Fabiano Cruz.

During the “Virada Esportiva” MMA event this Saturday in São Paulo, Vella suffered an accidental injury to his knee while cornering his older brother, Thiago, and thus will be unable to compete this coming weekend of the 24th and 25th in Nottingham, England.

“Because of the injury I’ll have to keep off my feet for a few days and will thus have to put off my dream of winning an ADCC for a couple more years. These things happen in life; I’ll just have to get over it,” lamented the black belt, who had qualified to compete in the over-99kg division.
