Well, they gave in on the Sambo request, but it's because there's also striking in Combat Sambo...if it was Sport Sambo, I doubt there would've ever been an issue.

Good luck to my teammate Murillo Santana! He already beat Andre Galvao in the gi twice last year I think he might do really well here! WAR MURILLO!

Bad news, It seems ADCC jumped the gun on their website and put up some names that may not be competiting at this years tournament.

Demian Maia, Nate Marquardt and GSP have all indicated they wont be taking part this year.

They're still on the website so we'll have to wait and see.
