ADCC 2019 Results: Yuri Simoes vs Elliot Marshall

Simoes emerged victorious from the first round at ADCC 2019, where he met ex-UFC fighter, Elliot Marshall. He began the match with a quick takedown before securing an armbar from the back to finish. Simoes sets up a Quarter-final meeting with the winner of Kaynan Duarte vs Edgar Rafiev. Duarte submitted his opponent in the opening round as well but in much faster time, resulting in a classic match-up.

Simoes is the reigning -99kg ADCC champion and has entered ADCC 2019 as one of the favorites to take home the gold in the larger weight-class. Three more fights should see Simoes to achieving this feat and becoming the first man to win ADCC gold medals in three different divisions.
