The list of competitive BJJ giants we’ll see rolling for glory at ADCC continues to grow.
Jon “Thor” Blank, Matheus Diniz, and Keith Krikorian all shared word of their confirmed ADCC invitations today, bringing the number of mat monsters competing in the biggest no-gi event of the year to…lots.
Fighting out of 10th Planet, Krikorian made it to the finals during ADCC’s trials but failed to advance by submission to the main event. Also of 10th Planet, Blank placed third at the trials and has been seen taking legs and backs at EBI CJJ 17 and Quintet. Diniz is a disciple of Marcelo Garcia, and recently took the “W” at F2W and well as medaling at Pans.
The trio join names like Gordon Ryan, Nicky Ryan, Paulo Miyao, Vagner Rocha, Lady Sasa Yuasa, Lachlan Giles, Lucas Lepri, Alec Baulding, Romulo Barral, Marcus Buchecha, Nick Rodrigeuz, Bia Mesquita, and Ffion Davies, among many more, in a chase for gold.
