Jeff Monson ended up scoring third place in the 218+ pound division, while Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos also placed third in the women’s 132+ pound tournament.
The big winner of the event was Bráulio Estima from Brazil, who was ultimately crowned the 2009 Absolute ADCC Champion. Estima currently has plans to make his mixed martial arts debut in the near future.
