The Superfight for ADCC 2007 is now set. Dean Lister had to withdraw a few days ago because of injury leaving an opening to be fullfilled. ADCC wishes Dean a speedy recovery and look forward to having him come back strong in ADCC 2009. However the show must go on, replacing Dean in the Superfight against current Absolute winner Roger Gracie, will be none other than Ricardo Arona. As you may recallm Arona could not defend his Superfight title in ADCC 2005 against Dean because of contratual obligations with Pride. Now in a turn of events Arona gets to replace Dean, setting up a spectacular battle with Roger.Changes in the Men’s brackets: Arona leaves a space in the U99KG division, Alexandre ‘Cacareco’ steps down in weight replacing Arona in the U99KG category and 2003 Winner Jon Olav Einemo steps up in Cacareco’s place in the Over 99KG category!
