Figured this might be of interest to some people here.

The ADCC trials for the south pacific region were held on Sunday March 8 in Sydney Australia. I entered (at under 66kg) for the first time looking more to build my experience competing at this level than to win. I lost my first match against eventual silver medalist Jamie Ballard (http://www.newcastlefightgym.com/). I landed a couple of takedowns before Jamie managed to reverse from half guard, pass and catch me in a guillotine as I escaped his side control.

Here are the final results:

Under 65kg David Marinakis
66-76kg Rodney Ellis
77-87kg Igor Praporshchikov
88-98kg Anthony Perosh
99kg and Over Denis Roberts

A video of the final in the 99kg and over division can be found here
