The ADCC 2009 organization just confirmed another athlete for the under 77kg category. Nova Uniao Jiu-Jitsu black belt Leonardo Santos is the 15th competitor in the division (now just one name is missing to fill out the category).
This will be Leo Santos’ third time participating in the ADCC. In 2001, Santos defeated Leo Vieira to make it to the semifinals. In the semifinal he lost to Matt Serra, who took his back. In the third place dispute he overcame Rodrigo Gracie (photo above).
Four years later, Leo once again made it to the semifinals and had one of his greatest moments in the form of a flying armbar over Georges St. Pierre (photo above). After that, he came up against Marcelo Garcia and dropped out of title contention. In the third place dispute he was finished by a surprising Jake Shields, who choked him from the back.
