    No Holds Barred: Kid Peligro on 2013 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championship 




    On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman once again spoke with our colleague and correspondent Kid Peligro.

    It is now time for the 2013 ADCC Submission Fighting World Championship, the most important and prestigious grappling tournament in the world, which will as always feature competition in no-gi grappling.

    It will take place Saturday, October 19, and Sunday, October 20, in Beijing, China, at the Beijing Ditan Sports Centre.

    It also was just announced that ADCC 2013 will be available as an online pay-per-view, on Ustream. For more information on that, go to http://www.adcombat.com/adcc-worlds-2013-live-sream.

    Besides the competition in the five men's and two women's weight classes and the absolute division, there will be two superfights. Braulio Estima will take on Andre Galvao, and in a masters' superfight, Mario Sperry will face Fabio Gurgel.

    To preview this event, we spoke with Kid Peligro by phone Monday.

    Much attention has been given to the ADCC debut of the 23-year-old phenom, Marcus "Buchecha" Almeida of CheckMat. He has won double gold, at +100 kg and in the absolute division, in both the 2012 and 2013 Jiu-Jitsu World Championships, also known as the Mundials. That, however, is no guarantee of a victory for him in ADCC, where he will be competing at +99 kg.

    "It's a different transition. ADCC is not jiu-jitsu without a gi," said Kid Peligro. "It's got its own set of rules, and it's got its own little quirks, how points are scored. And I've seen some great people stumble, especially first year."

    He cited how it took Andre Galvao, now in this year's superfight, three times to win his weight and the absolute. "He didn't translate to the top form that he reached."

    While there are returning champions including Rafael Mendes, Dean Lister, Vinny Magalhaes, and Gabrielle Garcia, this event has historically seen some unexpected winners.

    As for this year, "It's really hard to determine a dark horse, because you just see it when you see it," said Kid Peligro.

    Asked to name a possible dark horse, he said, "I think Rustam Chsiev is the one. That's the one I can see, off the top of my head.... I could see him going to the finals." Chsiev will be competing at -87.9 kg, which is expected to be one of the most wide-open weight classes.

    We also discussed who is in and who is out in each weight class, who are the favorites at each weight, and much more.
