why is Abu Dhabi the place where the biggest no-gi grappling tournaments emerged???
why not Brazil?
i believe it has to do with a prince in that country likes submission wrestling and decided to hold a tournament there with the best in the world competing.
I think it was one of the princes of that country that went to America for college during the early UFC times. He got really into grappling and eventually got his black belt.
After returning home he wanted to set up a tournament for the worlds best grapplers. With the money his family has it was possible
I only hope the next question won't be why are there no sheiks in brasil?
that's a sub par question for obvious reasons, the one I asked was not
Has anyone ever been submitted in Abu Dhabi? I've seen a few matches and all went the distance.
yes dude, TONS of people have been submitted in ADCC
Oh I guess I'll have to keep watching then. I've only seen Vol 1 and some clips of other matches.
Does anybody on here know if the ADCC 2005 is worth buying? The 7 disc one...
Cause the shiek is RICH BITCH.
no seriously thats has alot to do with it.
and he made friends with the right people in AMerica and Americans from Brazil
I watched some of it. It is awesome.
And by the way the ADCC are not always held in Abu Dhabi. But they are still sponsored by prince Tahnoon.
Also, probably some of the bigger no-gi things in Brazil would be better compitition, but ADCC has turned into a truly international event, which I thinks helps the popularity. Plus, like other's have said, the money is good for the winners.

They need only need commentating, or some light music in the background that doesnt suck.
I'll just turn on good CD or something in the background :icon_idea
Oh, common. Ya gotta love the drums.
The 2005 was great live, haven't seen the DVDs yet. As soon as I have the money I will buy the set though.
Oh man, in the Royler vs Spanish Vale Tudo guy in Vol. 2 the crowd started chanting Ol
Roger Gracie submitted everyone of his opponents in the Absolute division, the first person EVER to do so. He might have submitted everyone in his weight too, I don't remember. George St. Pierre got subbed by a flying armbar too.
