In this very open 77kg category, the main contenders include Leo Vieira, Kron Gracie, Leonardo Nogueira and Otavio Sousa. Kron Gracie doesn’t have many titles to his name, especially at black belt, but he is a phenom and arguably the favourite here. Lucas Lepri is a no gi specialist and has the most no gi titles to his name out of anyone. Long time veteran Leo Vieira leads the way in the bottom half – he is a 2X ADCC champion and 2X ADCC runner up. His main rival in the bottom half is the World Champion of the last 2 years Otavio Sousa. The dark horse of the competition will be AJ Agazarm, a high level wrestler and the 2012 Pan Am Champion at brown belt. Former UFC Champion Benson Henderson competes, but shouldn’t cause much problems.

Prediction: Kron Gracie beats Leo Vieira
Dark Horse: AJ Agazarm

MMA Fighters: Benson Henderson (19-3), Sitoru Kitaoka (32-12), Andy Wang (7-8)



Events Attended: UFC 120, CWFC 45, CWFC 52
