ADCC 2009 is now a part of history. With the champions, runners-up and bronze medalists defined, we can now update our ADCC athletes ranking.
The following special prizes were defined:
Most technical athlete 2009: Braulio Estima
Best fight 2009: Marcelo Garcia vs. Kron Gracie
We also imput four points of the best fight of 2007 (Braáulio vs. Xande).
The new numbers show Marcelo Garcia in the lead, 12 points ahead of the runner-up. They also show how Braulio Estima moved up the most places. He jumped from 47th to 13th. The overall ranking now includes 76 athletes. Brazilians maintain dominion, with 16 names among the top 20.
The following points criteria were applied:
1.Absolute champion – 20pts
2.Category champion – 17pts
3.Supermatch champion – 15pts
4.Absolute runner-up – 13pts
5.Category runner-up – 11pts
6.Supermatch runner-up – 9pts
7.Absolute third place – 7pts
8.Category third place – 5pts
9.Most technical athlete – 3pts
10.Participant in best match – 2pts
In the event of a draw in points, the athlete with the win of greater worth will take the lead. For example, even if drawn on points, the athlete with an absolute title will be ahead of the athlete who was a category champion.
