The build up to the 2022 ADCC championships is happening. The third Evolve Ur Game (EUG) event has been announced for October, and after two gi tournaments, EUG 3 will feature an eight-man no-gi grand prix following ADCC rules. Given that ruleset, fans should expect to ADCC championship hopefuls competing for an invite to the tournament. One competitor, Josh Cisneros, has been announced for EUG 3.
The first two EUG events saw the best gi jiu-jitsu competitors in the world go head-to-head in high-paced matches; both tournaments were won by young grapplers considered to be the future of competitive jiu-jitsu. At EUG 1, Atos representative Andy Murasaki defeated Kennedy Maciel, Gianni Grippo, and Matheus Gabriel to win the 160-pound tournament in his black belt debut. And at EUG 2, Art of Jiu-Jitsu product Jonatha Alves defeated Mica Galvao in the finals of the 170-pound tournament in what was one of the best matches of the year so far.
Like the previous two EUG events, the winner of the grand prix at EUG 3 will walk away with $10,000 in cash.
Simply put, Josh Cisneros is one of the top no-gi competitors on the planet. He is an IBJJF Pans and American Nationals champion, as well as a Fight To Win 155-pound champion. Cisneros is coming off a hard-earned decision victory over ADCC silver medalist Kennedy Maciel at Fight To Win 179.
