ADCC 2019 Results: Gordon Ryan vs Ben Hodgkinson

The returning champion, Gordon Ryan, staked his claim to a second win at ADCC 2019. The Danaher Death Squad product wasted no time in dispatching Ben Hodgkinson by submission within the first two minutes. He sunk in a picture-perfect Rear-Naked Choke to secure his place in the Quarter-Finals.

ADCC 2019 has kicked off fast with several early finishes in the opening rounds, Ryan’s among them. He sets up a meeting with the winner of Tim Spriggs vs Felipe Andrew in the next round. This leaves only three opponents left in Ryan’s path to a consecutive gold medal, only shortly after recovering from injury.
