Reilly Bodycomb: ADCC Trials 2009
Reilly did great today at the ADCC East Coast trials pro division. He did not win, however, he fought a hard strategic 13 minutes. After the first 10 minute round, the score was 0-0 and Reilly had kept leg control the whole time. He had several near-miss subs, but could not finish unfortunately. Too bad no points for sub attempts and aggression.
His opponent was composed and very smart. He played a great game. Reilly was one of the smallest guys in the division and did very well against a skilled bigger opponent. At just under 3 minutes of overtime, Reilly lost to a shoulder lock. All and all a great debut for Reilly in the ADCC and in the pro world of grappling. Props to Reilly's opponent.

Video coming soon...
Video not available?
Sux that he lost. Can't wait to see the video!
Man, he was threatening with leglock after leglock. Good match, maybe he should drop a weight class?
Yeah, definitely. If he drops to 145 (he is 155), it would be good. We though about it, but it was late in the game and did not want to rush the weight loss and lose stregnth, etc. Reilly trains against lots of bigger guys, so we just thought f-it...let's do it. With this experience, we go back, plan better, work on some things, etc. It was good learning experience for both of us.

Especially in an event with such a wide class (145 - 165)...and they were giving a 3 pound allowance.
