Jeff's a great grappler. His 1-1 performance at ADCC last year was solid, but the reality is, that weightclass is too stacked right now for Glover or Ryan Hall to really stand a chance at taking home a medal among the top guys.

I mean, the ADCC semi-final round looked like this:

Cobrinha vs. Rani Yahya
Rafael Mendes vs. Leo Viera

Those are four guys who are all in a totally different tier than Jeff Glover.

Glover had a brutal matchup in the quarter-finals. He had to face defending champ Rani Yahya, and he got beat. But, realistically, there's not a single guy, out of those four, that Glover could've gotten matched up with, and beaten.

Three of them are ADCC world champions in that weightclass. Viera won in '05, Yahya in '07 and Mendes last year. And Cobrinha is a six time IBJJF world champion blackbelt and protege to one of the greatest grapplers in recent history, (Fernando Terere) so Glover is a little out of his class.

It's a great time to be a fan of submission grappling and BJJ, but the Brazilians are pretty dominant right now, especially in that weightclass. For a brownbelt to show up and win the mens side of a division with four world champion blackbelts would be kind of absurd.

I mean, Mendes was a huge underdog in that weightclass, and managed to win it. But he was a BJJ blackbelt when he showed up at the tournament and did win the Brazilian qualifier. (which is, by far, the hardest of the qualifiers)
