Video: ADCC 2011 Highlights

Though most casual MMA fans only follow what goes on in the sport itself, the more hardcore customers will know that every two years a submission wrestling tournament is held featuring the world’s best grapplers — many of them prominent mixed martial artists.

Started by a rich Shiek/Brazilian jiu-jitsu enthusiast, the ADCC (Abu Dhabi Combat Club) Submission Wrestling World Championships is one of the world’s premier grappling tournaments, inviting competitors of any grappling background to come and test their mat mettle against their peers.

This year, the ADCC’s were held in Nottingham, England, featuring a host of exciting matches in the respective divisions as well as a pair of entertaining superfights. Below, you can catch highlights of the action courtesy Stuart Cooper.
