Kid Peligro Jiu-Jitsu News . . . 2017 ADCC Ladies U60KG Division

ADCC 2017 takes place on September 23 & 24, at the Espoo Arena in Finland. The event will be webcast live by Continuing with our ADCC 2017 handicap we now look at the ladies Under 60 KG division.


  1. Mackenzie Dern (USA) – ADCC 2015 winner
  2. Bianca Basílio (Brazil) – South American Trial winner
  3. Rikako Yuasa (Japan) – Asian Trial winner
  4. Ffion Davies (Great Britain) – European Trial winner
  5. Michelle Nicolini (Brazil) – Invited
  6. Beatriz Mesquita (Brazil) – Invited
  7. Talita Alencar (Brazil) – Invited
  8. Elvira Karppinen (Finland) – Invited

The ladies under 60 K division is stacked, with returning champion Mackenzie Dern, runner up Michelle Nicolini and 3rd place Bia Mesquita all returning while being joined by a host of other top ladies competitors. In my opinion the returning trio of Dern, Nicolini and Mesquita will be once again the podium and the final match up will once again depend on the bracketing. Most likely Mesquita and Dern will be on the same side of the bracket and whoever wins that match goes against Nicolini in the final

My prediction is whoever wins between Dern and Mesquita takes the title
