In the news section of the show we discussed some of the replacements for the upcoming IBJJF GP. Plus our continued excitement for ADCC divisions.
In the preview of Gordon Ryan Vs Felipe Pena 3, we discussed the first 2 matches and how much Gordon has changed improved his game. Including how he has changed his 50-50 play, and how he has changed his passing to deal with the knee shield. We also discussed his back taking skills and level of control, plus the takedown in their ADCC match in the no points section of the match. For Felipe we discussed the Andre match and the Vanger matches as recent no-gi performances and contrasted what he has shown recently against Gordons improvements. We also discussed the format of the match and possibly the avenue Gordon would try and take the match into. With the improvements in his takedowns, wrestling, guard play and sweep game and no longer relying on the leg entries as a cornerstone of his game in the last 5 years as a black belt in this rematch.
In the recap of Toro Cup 21 we discussed the main event of Gabriel Sousa vs. Gavin Corbe that saw Sousa take a points victory after some great back and fourth, we then discussed how his game would look at ADCC and how sharp his transitions had been looking.
In the recap of Fight to Win 207 headlined by Yuri Simoes vs Roosevelt Sousa we talked about how the activity of the match was reminiscent of the -99 days of ADCC in prior years and speculated that both grapplers may not be showcasing their whole game ahead of ADCC in 6 weeks.
In the outro Maine discussed an upcoming trip to Nebraska to interview, train with and film John Hansen ahead of his ADCC run in -99kg.
