Ryan hall didn’t deserve that invite at this point imo.

*edit just realized that’s a list of trials guys

Regular ADCC is going to be amazing this year

77 also has Tonon, Nicky Ryan, and Lachlan

88 has Craig Jones, Vagner, and Hinger

99+ is going to have Nicky Rod and Gordon Ryan, potential fireworks there

ADCC is going to be awesome this year. I might take vacation time to watch it

I hate Vagner, but interested to see how he does at 88. Also 77 is STACKED. Mica Galvao is there, kid is a monster

99 has some good drama there . Should be tense

This might be the deepest ADCC yet

77kg looks fun as hell!

Nicky is really good man. 77 is a tough division but I think he’s my pick

Nicky is hurt again. Wiltse is also trying to do trials at 77 with Magid, Tackett, Steel, Satava

I think they just need to clean up his meniscus though, so he’ll only be out 6 weeks or less

Oh thats why he pulled out against Hillbilly Hammer?

High profile, current UFC fighter that’s a grappling specialist, former medalist with two appearances, and anyone that has trained with him in the last decade will babble about how good he actually is.
It’s not like this is a strictly merit tournament where invites aren’t handed out to interesting participants to spice it up either, or that similar invitees haven’t been brought in since the beginning of the tournament.
But yeah, sure, Gabriel Sousa and Ethan Crelinsten make sense?

He hasn’t grappled at that level in years and the game has progressed tons. His 3rd place at adcc had a bunch of guys pull out. He want the third best in that bracket. He’s also been called out repeatedly and won’t grapple anyone even though he never fights while you have active ufc fighters grappling in their fight pass promotion.

He hasn’t shown anything in recent history that merits that spot when you have all of these active killers in the qualifying tournaments who would beat him.

He wouldn’t qualify if he had to earn his spot

Yeah Im a Ryan Hall fan, but I could think of a ton of people who are more deserving of a spot
