Craig Jones is a different grappler than he was two years ago when he shocked the world by choking out Leandro Lo at ADCC 2017. Now, he’s back in action and already putting on a promising performance with a first-round win. Of course, if he wants that gold, he’ll have to get through many more impressive competitors to get there, including CJJ champion Jon Blank, who leg-locked accomplished Russian grappler Rustam Chsiev to advance to the quarter-finals.
