ADCC All The Results

Reading Time: 38 minutes

In this article, I will be detailing every single ADCC trials and championship that have happened in the past 24 years, and I will include highlights where I can.

Table of Contents

Timeline

The ADCC has changed a lot over the years from adding trials and women’s division down the line.

Different weights classes etc.

But I’m going to go through a linear timeline of every ADCC trials and championship with the best information I can find and confirm.

I’m also going to put in some highlights I can find as well.

ADCC 1998

Credit: ADCC

The first ADCC event was held on March 20-22 1998 in Abu Dhabi.

It held six divisions 66,77,88,-99 and +99kg with a absolute division.

Women’s division hasn’t been added yet and the event was still invite-only, and trials were still a few years away.

66kg

1st Alexandre Soca

2nd Robin Gracie

3rd Alexander Plavski

4th Mark

With the under 66kg division being the least popular, there was only 8 competitors, there are meant to be 16.

Notable names like Robin Gracie received silver, Robin is Helio’s youngest son.

The gold medalist Alexandre Soca Freitas competed frequently in the late 90s and early 2000s.

For all my research I can’t find out who “Mark” is.

Superfight

Andre Galvao defeated Felipe Pen by points 2-0.

Covid 19

Due to Covid 19 restrictions around the world.

This led to ADCC being delayed till 2022.

As it was almost impossible to hold any trials event during 2020.

This has also led to Asia & Oceania only having one trial whereas the rest of the regions had two.
