Galvão voted best of ADCC 2011

André Galvão was the big name of ADCC 2011, last September 24 and 25 in Nottingham, England.

The São Paulo native won the under-88kg division as well as the absolute.

Today, the ADCC added two more prizes to Galvão’s ledger.

He was voted best competitor of 2011 and star of the best match, for his under-88kg battle with Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares.

Now Toquinho also took the prize for best takedown, which he applied on Dan Schon, also in the under-88kg division.

To round out the list, Marcelo Garcia’s guillotine on Victor Estima, in the under-77kg division, netted him quickest submission of the event.

With the prizes, Galvão added five more points to the GRACIEMAG ADCC Athletes Ranking and made it into the top ten, with 65 points, occupying ninth place.

Toquinho added two points and went from 55th to 45th, with 13 points.
