The Ryan family is having a very successful day so far at ADCC. First, Gordon blazed through his first opponent, and later on, Nicky had a close, but successful match against Jamil Hill in the 66kg division. The match started with Hill trying to pass Ryan’s guard, but Ryan later managed to sweep Hill. Hill was unable to pass Ryan’s guard before the clock ran out, and Ryan came away with the win. His next match will be against Paolo Miyao in the quarter-finals.

The first round of this bracket was packed with close calls and upsets, with 10th Planet star Geo Martinez getting taken out by Matheus Gabriel (who just received his black belt last year) and Kennedy Maciel recovering from getting his back taken and submitting his opponent with a triangle with barely over a minute to spare.
