Definitely excited for this, I am wanting to learn as much as possible about the ground game. Knowing about the ground game makes MMA more exciting and there is no better exhibition in the sport than ADCC.

Hey manfred you missed Yushin Okami.

By the way guys. ADCC matches can be slow. They can be very slow. Imagine a figher in anothers guard without being able to strikes. I personally enjoy them, however many MMA fans tend to find them a bore.

Its a accquired taste. Like squid.

I agree, they can be slow, but they definitely give you more insight into what is actually going on when two fighters go to the ground in an MMA fight.

I just saw on Pro Elite's website that this event is now $19.99 if you buy now and $24.99 if you buy Saturday. How weak is that? Didn't take them long to cash in on streaming events live. Bitches.

I know most of us will be getting it, but for those who dont, Ill throw match by match results up, if theres any interest (in real time)

Ill be on in the morning, if someone else has one going, Ill just hang along and watch.
