    I'm assuming Aaron Johnson will be replaced at some point.
    Given his recent trouble and that he's been dropped from his gym and two other competitions.

    66 kg- Lots of talent, I'm going with Nicky Ryan... He's been on a quiet tear, and I think his time is now, this will be his breakout year.

    77 kg- If Garry were more active in sub grappling, I'd for sure pick him, but I'm going with the guy who has been on fire in that lineup... Vagner Rocha

    88 kg- Lo has been working hard, I'm sure he wants that Craig Jones match back. Keenan also has a chip on his shoulder with the whole Atos exit. Always hard to pick against Xande..... I'm going with Craig Jones.

    99 kg- If Gordon Ryan is healthy, him hands down.... If he's not, it's either Gaudio or Hulk (depending on the bracket).

    +99 kg- Hard to pick against Buchecha, Rocha, and Yuri..... But Kaynan Duarte time is now.... I wouldn't be shocked if Buchecha wins, but Duarte is my pick.

    W 60 kg- Bia.... Elvira has been doing great in no gi comps, but Bia will win.

    W +60 kg- everyone will say Gabi, but if my homegirl Nathiely de Jesus gets the invite, I'm going with her.... She just won Pans gold, lost to Gabi in the absolute finals, but I thought should have won via advantage... Gabi controlled her with the gi (even with a big weight and height advantage), without that, I'm going Nat to win.

    Those are my picks.... Interested to see the invites and other winners.

    It's in September in LA, so @MMAHAWK@MMAHAWK @Carbazel@Carbazel I may go out there to watch (schedule permitting)... If so, let's do a C2C there live.

    Not sure if Ed will be able to make it but I’m definitely down. I’ll see about getting us credentials when it gets closer.

    Is this Flo only still? I went to the 2011 ADCC in Nottingham to support my instructor. Was amazing to witness all the greats. #fuckflo

    Mikey at 66kg. Because Mikey. fuck it.

    Lucas Lepri at 77kg. He might not win, but you'd be retarded to bet on anyone else. Not that @Rhino@Rhino is retarded for picking Vagner. (maybe just a little)

    I'm taking Keenan in the 88kg. His gi and no gi game are so radically different, the opportunity to ronin about and train with whoever he wants is going to bust him off of his current plateau.

    At 99kg, I can't explain it, but my heart says this is Romulo's year.

    And Buchecha. If Roger isn't in the bracket, I go with Buchecha.

    Seth Daniels from F2W is doing the production on the event so it will be a real show for sure. I may have to go out and watch in person.

    Ryan looks like he's been bulking up lately. 77 must be a more comfortable weight class for him? With Tonan bowing out there's no conflict.

    I didn't realize Danis was that big. He must cut a lot to fight mma at 77kg. Either way he's getting destroyed in that division. Any division really. Lotta killers in this event.
