The final rounds of the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) grappling competition came to a close on Sunday (Aug. 30, 2015) from Sao Paulo, Brazil. This prestigious grappling tournament only takes place every two years and has a very loose set of rules, so the winners have a legitimate claim to being the best no-gi grappler at their weight class in the world.

After the opening and quarterfinal rounds concluded on Saturday -- click here for those results -- Sunday's competition would determine who won the individual weight classes. In addition, there was an open weight absolute division held, featuring competitors from each division.

Let's take a look at the quick results from those matches.

Male -66kg

  1. Rubin "Cobrinha" Charles
  2. Bruno Frazzato
  3. Augusto Mendes

Male -77kg

  1. Davis Ramos
  2. Lucas Lepri
  3. Gilbert Burns

In the finals match between Ramos and Lepri, Ramos landed an incredible armbar to earn the gold medal. Check it out!

  4. Here are the preliminary results from the absolute division.

    For those solely interested in how the well-known veterans of the mixed martial arts (MMA) world fared, both Gilbert Burns and Vinny Magalhaes earned bronze medals in their respective divisions. Unfortunately, Benson Henderson found no success in his match either, falling via kimura to Rodolfo Viera.

    Finally, there was also a Super Fight between Andre Galvao and Roberto "Cyborg" Abreu. While "Cyborg" was the larger man, it ultimately didn't matter, as Galvao outpointed his opponent for the victory.

    There you have it.
