Day 1, 2011 Results Abu Dhabi World Pro, No Gi

No Gi started the World Pro off with the Jiu-Jitsu championships coming next week.  The No Gi competition, not originally included in the Pro, was recently added and offered competition to the ADCC grappling tournament that had been THE long standing No Gi competition to fight in.  Now the World Pro and ADCC trials go side by side sometimes around the world and the competitors need to choose which to attend.

This time with the ADCC finals in September, and in the UK.  Compeitors can easily swing going to each if they manage the trials well.  The World Pro’s first days was set with excitement.  Rodolfo Vieira moved to the finals in the Absolute and his division.  Rodolfo will not have it easy as he faces Rafael Mendes of ATOS.  This match up will be a stregnth vs technique battle as Rodolfo weighing in at about 200lbs has over 55lbs on Mendes at 145lbs.
