The Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) Submission Wrestling World Championship, the most-prestigious grappling tournament in the world, is taking place this weekend in Barcelona, Spain and a handful of MMA notables are in action at the event.

On Saturday, Ronaldo “Jacaré” Souza defeated Robert Drysdale 2-0 on points in a featured grappling superfight, while notables Fabrico Werdum, Jeff Monson, Vinny Magalhaes, and Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos all advanced to Sunday’s semifinals in their respective divisions.

As a side story, obviously this also confirms that Monson won his appeal and is allowed to leave the country for work purposes after his felony ruling stated he could not.
