The Abu Dhabi Combat Club submission wrestling tournaments bring in some of the best no-gi grapplers in the world. (Although they have kids, teens, and beginners divisions, too.)
This year, regional tournaments are being held in Spring Texas, Los Angeles California, Las Vegas Nevada and Denver Colorado. For us Utahans, the most accessible would probably be the Vegas regional, held on August 1.
If you have any questions about the tournament, you can read this interview with promoter Brett Boyce. If you desire to sign up, click here.
If you’re travelling and might be able to compete/attend one of their events, check out the official ADCC regional site, www.adccregionals.com .

I went down to the Orem Throwdown center for the Utah Champion Submission Challenge XI. First of all, what a blast! This was my first time down to Throwdown and it had a great atmosphere and all of the competitors were very cool. There were dozens of exciting matches, plenty of them taking advantage of the no time limit. Local MMA’er Steve “Razor” Sharp had a match that must have lasted 20 minutes.
I believe Ben Gardner snatched up the first place in the Absolute division, so congrats Ben. For all other division’s results, they should be posted on www.utahchampion.com soon.
Bart vs Brandon (HQ) – 162 meg
Bart vs Nick (HQ) – 475 meg
Aaron vs Ben (HQ) – 534 meg
As I get more vids, I’ll get them posted up.
