After waiting a full three years since the last ADCC World Championships (thanks to a postponement caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic), grappling fans are now salivating over what is being hailed as the biggest and best ADCC ever.

The first two rounds of the men’s divisions and the first round of the women’s divisions will take place on Saturday, with the semifinals, consolation finals, divisional finals, and absolute division taking place on Sunday.

The ADCC superfight is arguably the most anticipated match in submission grappling history, as Gordon Ryan, the reigning 99 kg. and absolute division ADCC champion, will take on four-time ADCC superfight champion Andre Galvao. The match is years in the making after the two have traded words on social media and engaged in an infamous backstage confrontation in which Ryan slapped Galvao.

How to watch: The 2022 ADCC World Championships take place on September 17-18 and will air live on FloGrappling (subscription required).
