New, comments

Join Bloody Elbow for live discussion of the ADCC 2015 Submission Wrestling World Championship tournament in Sao Paulo, Brazil on August 29-30. Many of the world's top BJJ practitioners and several UFC fighters will compete for ADCC gold across seven weight classes.

On a weekend when there is absolutely no UFC or any other major MMA at all, the combat sports world can focus its attention on the 2015 ADCC championships in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Many of the world's top submission grapplers will compete for prestigious ADCC gold, and several UFC entrants have made their way into the competition, most notably Ben Henderson and Hector Lombard.

Link to the Budovideos live stream of Saturday competitions. The PPV can be purchased for $24.95 for one day or $39.95 for Saturday and Sunday.

Here's a quick rundown to familiarize yourself with the whole proceedings:

What are the ADCCs? T.P Grant describes:

Known in shorthand as the "ADCCs," it is a professional grappling tournament held every two years that attracts the top grappling talent from all across the world. The rule set is extremely open in terms of submissions and positions allowed; the scoring system designed to increase aggressive takedowns and an attacking style on the ground. The event features a tournament and then one-off super fights between major ADCC champions.

What is the schedule?

This year, the ADCCs are split into two days. The Saturday schedule will consist of the opening round and quarterfinals of all weight-classes, with the semis, bronze medal, and gold medal matches taking place on Sunday. We will have a separate post and live stream link for that. Today's superfight is between Mario Sperry and Ricardo Liborio, which will be held after the tournament matches are complete.

Bloody Elbow will have results (with updated brackets) at the end of day 1 and then a full recap after day 2. This is your place for discussing all things ADCC 2015. The only request (besides following the usual BE rules) is that no links to illegal streams be shared in the comments section. Doing so will result in a ban.
