American Katrina Weilbacher Gets Last Slot at the ADCC

It was under the wire, but American Katrina Weilbacher has gained the last over 60 kg spot at the ADCC this Saturday in Nottingham, England. Weilbacher will be taking the place of Strikeforce champion Cyborg Santos, who is unable to compete in martial arts tournaments outside of Strikeforce.

Weilbacher is a black belt out of Paragon Jiu Jitsu, and was the youngest in the U.S. to do so at age 24. She is a 3 time World BJJ Champion and 2 time No Gi World Champion. Based out of Santa Barbra, she joins Denver’s Cat Zingano as the only two U.S. female representatives at the ADCC.

The ADCC World Grappling will be live from Nottingham, England this Saturday and Sunday Sept. 24-25. You can watch the both days of matches for $25 by going to
