Brasil still rules in ADCC

As usual, the most important grappling tournament in the world ended with most medals taken by brazilian fighters. The dominance was not complete only because Marcelo Garcia lost his final match in the open division to the heavier american BJJ black belt Robert Drysdale. In all men’s weight classes both the first and second place were taken by brazilian nationals (Pablo Popovich fights out of the USA since he lives there but is actually from Brasil).
