Rousimar would have made the competition that much more exciting...

"He said he would fight depending on how his fight (with Pierce) went," Wagner Gomes, the secretary of ADCC in Brazil, told MMAFighting.com on Tuesday. "I sent him several messages, but he didn’t respond. They wanted him there, but he didn’t reply any of my messages or calls."

According to Gomes, ADCC still wanted Palhares to be part of the tournament despite of what happened during his fight with Pierce."

The Brackets Are UP!!!

http://www.adcombat.com/adcc-worlds-2013-starting-brackets

funny how all of my picks are at the top of each bracket...I find that very eerie...scary even...

Secretly rooting for Yoshida, Ricardinho, Keenan, DJ, Nyjah, Niccolini, Lavato, AJ, Cyborg, JT and a good performance from Bendo...but it seems like the favorites have already been bracketed to compete against each other in the finals.
