Brazilian-inspired bracketology! Check out the field for the upcoming ADCC 2013 Worlds submission wrestling tournament that takes place this weekend at Ditan Gymnasium in Beijing, China.

The world's premier no-gi submission wrestling tournament, Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC), starts up tomorrow (Sat., Oct. 19, 2013) and continues through Sunday (Oct. 20, 2013) at Ditan Gymnasium in Beijing, China. Occurring once every two years, Brazilian jiu-jitsu enthusiasts have been impatiently waiting for this event since 2011's explosive competition.

ADCC makes it a point to attract the best grapplers in the world with its large prize rewards. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veterans and a recently dethroned champion, Mundials winners, and former ADCC medalists adorn the roster of this year's contest.

The complete roster was released yesterday, and today ADCC followed that information up by releasing the brackets for both the men's and women's divisions. Seven brackets and 100 total athletes make up this two-day event, with five male weight classes and two female divisions.

In addition, four extremely talented competitors will be participating in super fights.
