We then moved into our preview of Third Coast Grapplings event, a qualifying event in order to earn your spot on the upcoming Third Coast Grappling 2 event streamed on FloGrappling. Maine and Emil, really love qualifiers as it gives grapplers a chance to earn their spot on big events.
Speaking of running your spot on a big event the 2019 ADCC Brazilian Trials / South American trials, taking place this weekend as well at the point of the recording we did not have a bracket or any athlete registration lists although this event is typically one of the larger qualifiers for ADCC, and is sure to produce some outstanding matches between top competitors looking to earn their spot on the biggest No-Gi event with the most prestige in the world. Given that this is the only qualifier in South America it is sure to be stacked with top talent in big names looking for their shot at ADCC gold.
We also previewed Tap Cancer Out Black Belt showcase as well featuring Mark Vives, Frank Rosenthal, Nick Newell, Mike Davila, Rick Hawn, Tiago Alves and more. This event goes toward a great cause and were really happy to see it taking place and showcasing great Jiu-jitsu.
