ADCC 2009 Results

Here are the results of the 2009 Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Grappling tournament results. The tournament is regarded as the pinnacle of no-gi grappling events. This years tournament was held in Barcelona, Spain.

The talk of the tournament was Braulio Estima who captured the absolute division and under 88KG crowns. Braulio joins Mario Sperry, Mark Kerr, Ricardo Arona and Roger Gracie as the only grapplers to win their weight division and the absolute division in the same year.

Many MMA stars placed high in this years event. TUF 8 Runner-up Vinny Magalhaes took 3rd in the under 99KG division and the absolute division with several slick submissions. Recent UFC cast-off Fabricio Werdum won the over 99KG division, while UFC vet Jeff Monson took 3rd.
