Xande is a two time Absolute (open weight) World Jiu-Jitsu Champion! He’s widely considered to be one of the world’s top grapplers. Ribeiro was the first person in the world to submit the American fighter Jeff Monson. Ribeiro’s techniques are planned down the tiniest detail, mapped out from second to second. His ability to take the back and finish, and his ability to catch submissions and sweeps from anywhere are going to intimidate his opponents in ADCC 2009. He is currently a competitor in Japan’s Sengoku Mixed Martial Arts and trains for his fights at The Arena, a professional MMA training gym in San Diego. Xande has a brother, Saulo Ribeiro, who is also a former Jiu-jitsu & submission fighting champion. Together they were formed in Gracie Humaitá and now they run Saulo & Xande Ribeiro’s University of Jiu Jitsu in San Diego, California.
