He is training full time in Croatia, if the lack of World Class training partners doesn’t hurt him, he should be in the finals and get the gold. 2- Rhadi Ferguson – Rhadi is a force of nature. Well trained and with recent Olympic experience, Rhadi will be throwing a few big guys over his head. If the brackets help him he will not only make the finals but get the shiniest medal3- Marcio ‘Pe de Pano’ Cruz – Pano is on the comeback trail, after a series of professional setbacks, Marcio returned to the mats where he belongs. He won the 2005 Pan-Ams weight and Absolute but looked somewhat out of shape in the end. ADCC will test his stamina and preparation and a bad draw could spell disaster for him. Look for him to contend, depending on the draw.Darkhorse – Jeff Monson – How can Jeff be a darkhorse ? ! ? Only because I believe this weight is a little much for him. Although he got a second in ’01 at the weight, there are some big boys here that can play the game. Monson always manages to get to the finals (except for ’05). Again his luck wil depend on the draw.These are my predictions, now I want you to make the call. Email your top predictions to [email protected] and Kid will randomly publish two of the readers predictions along with their info. Then after the event is run, we will have a random drawing of all the entries with the winner getting the 2003 ADCC DVD set sponsored by BJJMart.comStarting with our next report we are going to introduce the ‘Ask the expert’ ADCC predictions.
